More Countries are Introducing Travel Restrictions for South Africa

More and more countries are introducing travel restrictions for southern Africa due to the corona variant that has been identified there.


Earlier, the United Kingdom also restricted air traffic. The European Commission wants air traffic to and from southern Africa to be stopped immediately.

The decision comes shortly after the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that variant B.1.1529 identified in South Africa is a variant that is being monitored. Scientists believe that this variant may be even more contagious than the Delta variant, which is a major concern worldwide.

As far as is known, the variant is not yet found everywhere in the world. On Thursday, almost a hundred cases with the corona variant had been identified in South Africa.

The variant has also been found in four fully vaccinated people in Botswana and in a few travellers who arrived in Hong Kong and Israel from southern Africa.
