6 Guatemalans deported from US test positive for COVID-19

Published Tue Jun 23 2020 15:02:17 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
An official in Guatemala’s Health Ministry says at least six Guatemalans deported from the United States on June 9 tested positive for COVID-19. The flight was the first after a month-long suspension imposed by Guatemala after 186 migrants deported from the United States on various flights had tested positive for the disease. The official was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. The ministry has said it no longer plans to provide information about infected deportees to avoid stigmatizing them. The June 9 flight had arrived from Alexandria, Louisiana, carrying 40 adults and 10 children.
