Haiti is considering closing its airports and ports to travelers as well as the border with the neighboring Dominican Republic in order to prevent the entry of the coronavirus, Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe said on Twitter on Sunday.

Jouthe said that only goods could be permitted to enter Haiti, subject to evaluation.

The impoverished Caribbean nation, which has often struggled to deal with serious outbreaks of disease, has so far not registered any cases of coronavirus infection.

The Dominican Republic has reported 11 cases.
