COVID-19: Canada, UK among countries banning travel from southern Africa due to "Omicron" variant



Canada, the U.K., France and Israel are some of the countries that recently banned air travel from southern Africa after a new variant, known as “Omicron,” was recently detected in South Africa and labeled by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a variant of concern.

The European Union’s chief executive has also called for the suspension of travel connected to places where the variant has been detected. But WHO is cautioning against the move, asking countries to use a risk-based approach as opposed to a full ban. Cases have already been detected in Belgium and in Hong Kong as well.

South Africa’s own health minister on Thursday spoke about the variant, saying the government would be meeting to determine the implications of the variant.

  1. 11/29/21- NO SYMPATHY FOR YOU IDIOTS, IF THIS TRAVEL CRAP WASNT SUCH A WILLY NILLY ACTIVITY, WE WOULDNT BE FIGHTING TWO VARIETYS OF COVID AND NOW YOU WANT TO BRING IN ANOTHER, STAY WHERE YOU, SUCK IT UP, AND SEE IN THE FAR DISTANT FUTURE.

  2. For almost two years now the "experts" told you if you complied with measures, lockdowns, masks and vaccinations, life would return to normal.

    For almost two years now "conspiracy theorists" told you this "pandemic" was never going to end, and that governments would use it to usher in a new whirlled order.

    Who do you believe now?

  3. And now we have the moronic omicron variant – said by one "expert" to be as deadly as ebola, even though SA doctors in the field say it only produces mild symptoms.

    As with the other variantz, they'll milk this one for all it's worth. They'll use it to justify more restrictions, more measures, more lockdowns.

    They're even saying it affects the younger population more – perfect timing with the recent vax campaign of that age group. That means if (when) things start going south with the young-uns, they'll conveniently have the new "deadly" omicron variant to blame.

  4. The only reason they are banning South Africa is because they've refused anymore vaccines from big pharma. So big pharma that owns the gov'ts has put the squeeze on S.A. The "moronic" variant is in the vaccine and being spread by vaccinated people.

  5. Trudeau stated he loves communism and wants Canada to be more like China. It’s all part of his Build Back Better agenda.

    Canadians need to wake up and fight back before this pervert takes our country from us.

  6. Viruses mutate and this new one is reported as “extremely mild”…..more fear mongering by elites. Punish a continent that survives on tourism will only kill their economy and cause more mortality as a result and NOT because of a flu.

  7. Strange that not one msm channel is reporting on Ghislaine Maxwells trial TOMORROW! Also strange their not reporting on the black supremist anti white racist that ran over 60 white people in Waukasha WI christmas parade either…You are all mockingbird media!

  8. Don’t worry folks your vaccine will protect you from the new variant, I mean I hope so it definitely hasn’t worked as we’re still going into lockdowns. Take the jab, you’re selling ur soul to Lucifer himself.

  9. Sounds like something only the most RACIST of leaders would do. It's a shame the media is such hypocritical 💩's that they are not reporting this like when Trump was in office

  10. RACIST! how are the same ppl calling the ban on China racist now doing the exact same thing? how do ppl not see through these fake liars, at this point you're seriously either dumb or you're lying to yourself and keeping your head buried in the sand
