International Mail Services during the Covid 19 pandemic

I am posting this because a lot of collectors have contacts all over the world and collect more than just British stamps.  The situation is impacting on exchanges and the passing of mail from one country to another.

For outgoing mail (with an implication for incoming mail) this is Royal Mail's 'International Incidents' webpage:  https://personal.help.royalmail.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5317

This currently shows mail suspended to most of the West Indies, Albania, Armenia, Boznia-Herzegovina, Cuba, Djibouti, Ecuador, French Polynesia, India, Kuwait, Lebanon, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Samoa, South Africa, South Korea, Tanzania, Taiwan, Tunisia, UAE, Ukraine, Zimbabwe.

For other countries you can examine their websites and there is also usefulongoing information being added by collectors on the special Stampboards thread on the impact on mail.
