were on Thursday cleared to return home by Kurdish health officials, in a first for the Kurdistan Region since the outbreak began.
All 283 people held at three different quarantine sites in Soran province bordering Iran have been declared clear of any coronavirus symptoms.
"A total of 283 individuals who were quarantined in three different locations of Soran will be let home today," Karwan Jamal, head of Soran’s Health Department told Rudaw.
"All of them underwent medical tests for 14 consecutive days, twice a day," Jamal said. "Thankfully, they are all safe and did not show any signs of coronavirus."
A second group of 111 people "will be allowed home tomorrow (Friday)," he added.
Those who have left quarantine should still take health precautions, Jamal said, advising that they "check on their health and not visit crowded places for another two weeks."
"People are returning from Iran on a daily basis, so we have dedicated a place in Soran to quarantine the new returnees," he added, though returnee numbers from Iran have "dropped significantly" in the last fortnight.
Kurdish and Iraqi authorities have closed their borders with Iran and canceled direct flights serving Iranian cities, and Iraqi citizens returning from Iran must undergo 14 days in quarantine.
"According to our data, 10 to 15 people are returning daily," Jamal said.
According to health ministry figures, 2,303 people remain in quarantine across 27 Kurdistan Region locations.
Besides quarantine, KRG measures to prevent spread of the virus has included the shutdown of schools, a reduction in working hours across government institutions, and a ban on large public gatherings.
Total confirmed cases in Iraq stand at 37, according to data from Iraqi and KRG health authorities. All eight Kurdistan Region cases have been recorded in the city of Sulaimani.
