COVID-19 update from Riskline

Riskline, the international travel risk intelligence company, continues to produce general daily briefings on travel risks. 
The Copenhagen-headquartered organisation, founded in 2007, is noted for its streams of travel risk information to TMCs, who pass onto their clients and travellers; to insurance companies, security companies, employee assistance and employee benefits providers worldwide.  Whilst nominally based in Denmark the company has regional teams and analysts gathering information all over the world.  It also produces City Safety Reports on more than 240 cities across the globe.
Before COVID-19 took over and shut down business travel, Riskline was not only producing general daily briefings about travel risks but also reports and advice for special groups. 
It plans over the coming days to add additional information for each country: current case numbers, movement control measures and their scheduled end dates, international flight restrictions, entry restrictions and mandatory quarantine-upon-arrival times. While many countries are 'shut down' to travel at this time, clearly this information will be critical when travel begins again.
Suzanne Sangiovese, Riskline’s commercial and communications director said.   “While the volume of international travel has gone down, we've actually seen an increase in our daily reporting, particularly as countries implement and extend lockdowns, entry bans and other restrictions. All of this is in addition to our normal reporting of security issues, which in the last week ranged from Boko Haram attacks to tropical cyclones.”
Riskline's novel coronavirus public report is published every Thursday (see below).
