US lifts travel restrictions on 8 south African countries despite record COVID-19 cases

Washington: US President Joe Biden has signed a proclamation on Tuesday rescinding a earlier order that restricted journey from eight international locations in southern Africa within the hopes of containing the now-widespread Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

The extremely contagious pressure, which now accounts for the overwhelming majority of latest COVID-19 instances within the US, was first detected by scientists in South Africa in late November. President Biden rapidly restricted journey by non-US residents from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi in response.
