South Africa among six countries to be added to travel RED list in desperate bid to halt ‘worst ever’ Covid variant

The Sun says SOUTH Africa is among six countries set to be slapped with a travel ban in a desperate bid to halt the arrival of a terrifying new Covid strain.

Senior Government scientists said the super-mutant was the “worst variant they have seen so far” – with vaccines expected to be at least a third less effective against it.

Experts warn the strain is behind an explosion of new cases in South Africa, with some regions seeing a six-fold rise in infections in a matter of days.

Flights from South Africa as well Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Eswatini and Zimbabwe will be suspended from midday tommorow and all six countries will be added to the red list, Health Secretary Sajid Javid said.
