Pakistan and Afghanistan-shared Chaman border has been reopened for Pakistani nationals returning to the country on foot.
Afghans stuck in Pakistan, while several Pakistanis stuck in the neighboring country made their way back, can also return to their country.
The people returning are screened and tested for the novel coronavirus, and then quarantined in isolation camps set up in Chaman by the army.
The Afghan government had refused, two weeks ago, to reopen the border for people to cross on foot. They changed their minds then on Saturday (6 June) and decided.
The border had previously been closed after the number of cases of coronavirus spiked in both countries.
