UK Suspends Flights to Six African Countries As New Covid Variant Raises Alarms

The United Kingdom is panicking because of the rising Covid 19 cases, and now they have suspended flights to six African Countries because of the new warning of a new Covid variant found there.

We have reported the news of this new variant of the coronavirus and its potential problem because it has a lot of mutations. The World Health Organization has also called for an emergency meeting for this purpose and to discuss the new variant of the coronavirus.

UK Suspends Flights to Six African Countries As New Covid Variant Raises Alarms

We must say that this is not something to be taken lightly as it might be a new threat; however, it has not been confirmed as a fact yet, and therefore we can not say with final certainty that this one is a serious case.

However, the United Kingdom has seemed to take this matter at hand very seriously as they have suspended all the flights to six African Countries. That is a lot of flights if you are wondering about it. We do not know how long this is going to be in place.

We are thinking that the reason behind this sudden and fast decision of the United kingdom is because of the fact that the number of coronavirus cases is increasing in the area, and that is a major cause of concern. The holiday season is among us, and that might mean that the cases had the potential to rise even more in December.

“More data is needed but we’re taking precautions now. From noon tomorrow six African countries will be added to the red list, flights will be temporarily banned, and UK travellers must quarantine,” Javid wrote on Twitter regarding the decision that had been made by the government. He holds the position of the United kingdom secretary of state for health and social care.

That is all for now.
