Turkmenistan latest news I got:

Citizens from China, Hongkong and Taiwan, or people who are born there, will be refused (no news on an end date).
If you have a high temperature, you will be immediately quarantined for unknown duration.

All borders are open.

Turkmenistan news flash from a tour operator:

Today our tourist was taken to the hospital right from the airport for quarantine, they suspect coronavirus, but we all know the reality there.

Some tourists were not allowed to enter from Shavat. Those who are allowed in, (through any arrival port) authorities take for quarantine 6-7 people out of 10.

So as you see, very high risk to get stuck there, coz of paranoid fear of virus.

Update: tourist was cleared from the hospital after 3 days, had to pay 330$ in hospital bills.

No quarantine measures in Uzbekistan or Kyrgyzstan have been reported so far. Keep an eye on the first post in this thread. That's where we put all the info we have as soon as we find out.

Latest Turkmenistan news I got from a tour operator: no tourists at all are allowed in until the end of March.

Needs to be verified of course, but the outlook is negative.

Iraq is closing its borders with Iran. Unclear if it's only for Iraqi nationals and Iranian nationals.
