Nov 26 - New COVID variant in South Africa: U.S. restricts travel w/7 other countries
 

 

(CNN)President Joe Biden announced Friday the US will restrict travel from South Africa and seven other countries starting Monday as a new coronavirus variant has emerged.

Acting on advice from Dr. Anthony Fauci and the CDC, the Biden administration will restrict travel from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.

The decision to restrict travel comes as the federal government is still attempting to learn more about the new variant. They need to see more sequencing, but after discussing what they've seen so far, officials decided to halt travel from these other countries out of concern about what they don't yet know.

Biden was briefed today on the new coronavirus variant circulating in southern Africa, he said in the announcement.
Officials, who are still learning more about the variant, said the policy was implemented out of an abundance of caution given the WHO has now identified this as a variant of concern.

"Our scientists and public health officials are working quickly to learn more about this variant," one official said.
South Africa's health minister announced Thursday the discovery of the variant, which appears to be spreading rapidly in parts of the country.

Currently, "there's no indication" that the new variant is in the United States right now -- and US scientists are working closely with colleagues in South Africa to learn more about the emerging variant, Fauci told CNN's Brianna Keilar before the travel restrictions were announced Friday.

"Right now, we're getting the material together with our South African colleagues to get a situation where you could actually directly test it. So, right now you're talking about sort of like a red flag that this might be an issue -- but we don't know," Fauci said.

"You want to find out if in fact it does evade the vaccines that we're doing," Fauci said when asked about potential travel restrictions. "You're prepared to do everything you need to do to protect the American public, but you want to make sure there's a basis for doing that."
Several other countries -- including the United Kingdom -- have banned flights from South Africa and surrounding African countries in response to the emergence of the variant.

The travel restrictions do not apply to American citizens and lawful permanent residents. As with all international travelers, they must still test negative prior to travel.

Trump put a travel ban on those African countries way before covid, trump's ban had nothing to do with covid. Context matters, but not to you little retarded kids I guess....

They're saying this variant isn't as deadly though and is weaker than the Delta variant so I don't think it'll be as serious. Maybe covid is finally dying out.

Covid is a Sars Baby. That whole family here to stay B. Whole lotta relatives that will keep jumping and mutating. I aint even up on Covid rates just tired of giving a fu*k. Funny thing was my job did their grand opening not this past tuesday, but Tuesday the 16th. A dirty motherfu*ker with covid was in the office that day and went to the social afterwards.

I only gotta go in 1 day a week, and even that is optional(optional not optional, but I know how to juke the test on the home kit. ) Opening anything in the late fall or winter is dumb. I aint dying for these ppl just so they can have a reason to pay a property lease.

:/

The reaction to this sh*t sounds like it’s more deadly and more contagious than previous variants. I suppose we’ll know in a coupe weeks.

More Viruses and more economic sanctions if Africa doesn't accept the West's sh*tty/non effective vaccine.
I have a feeling in my gut that NATO is gonna use this as another excuse to tighten their rope around Africa's nect to prevent itself from being economically self sufficient. Furthermore, the West is going to use refusal of the vaccine to withhold or stop foreign investment.

One of the head contractors that do work at one of the sites my job operates just came back from there 2 weeks ago. He said before him and his wife could go they had to get a covid screening with a negative result before him and his wife could fly there because once you arrive they wouldn't let you out of the terminal into the country without papers showing you had a test done and didn't have the virus. He said before they could come back to the U.S. him and his wife had to get another Covid test done before Africa would allow them to get into the airport to even come home and when he got back here to Michigan they didn't even ask to see the papers showing they where clean. Just let them right back into the U.S. without asking for their paperwork.

lolol remember when Biden and the left kept sh*tting on Trump on how bad he handled Covid? Now they’re pushing the very vaccine that we’re developed partially due to operation warp speed. And still can’t contain it with vaccines in 2021 vs no vaccines in 2020. And Pfizer didn’t even wanna announce their vax until Biden won even though it was ready.

This is what happens when politics take priority over public safety.
