During the COVID-19 pandemic, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), monitors the movements to and from Nigeria's Adamawa and Borno States, located in the North East Geopolitical Zone. Assessments are conducted at Points of Entry located along the border with Cameroon.
During the period 21 - 27 August 2021, 204 movements were observed at three Points of Entry in Borno State. Of the total movements recorded, 101 were incoming from Cameroon’s Far North Region, while 103 were outgoing from Borno State to Cameroon‘s Far North Region.
A range of data is collected during the assessment to better inform on travellers’ nationalities, sex, reasons for moving, mode of transportation and timeline of movement as shown in figures 1 to 4 below
