BOGOTA (Reuters) – Colombia will block the entrance of all non-citizens beginning this weekend, President Ivan Duque said on Thursday, in a bid to control the spread of coronavirus.

The Andean country earlier this week closed its land and water borders and limited entry through airports to citizens and foreigners who are residents. Citizens will still be allowed to return, Duque said in a televised address.
