The Brazilian mining company Vale, which operates Mozambique's largest coal mine, at Moatize, in the western province of Tete, has decided to send its Brazilian staff and their families, a total of 250 people, back to Brazil, because of the threat posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. A Vale spokesperson told AIM that it has hired a plane for this task, since most regular flights are suspended.

The company said this was part of measures taken to protect its workers, its business and the communities living around its operations, in response to the pandemic. A spokesman said "The company stresses that it is in conformity with the health and safety protocols established by the authorities and agencies of each of the countries where it operates, and is monitoring the development of the situation."
