Guatemala Suspends Deportation Flights From U.S. on Covid Fears

MEXICO CITY—Guatemala suspended deportation flights from the U.S. on Thursday after a number of deportees who landed Monday tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Guatemalan officials said.

Flights had been suspended until further notice, said Joaquín Samayoa, spokesman for Guatemala’s foreign minister. This is the third coronavirus-caused suspension of deportation flights since March 17, when Guatemala closed its borders.
