    COVID-19 outbreak halts travel to US McMurdo Antarctica Base

    It is not the first outbreak of COVID-19 in Antarctica but it is the largest so far

    The United States National Science Foundation (NSF) has been forced to stop inbound travel to the McMurdo Base in Antarctica following a COVID-19 outbreak that has gripped nearly 10% of the staff, it was reported late Thursday, although essential arrivals and departures for health and safety reasons will still be allowed.
