Europe and Asia tighten their borders against COVID variants as the WHO urges caution ...

International security forces were able to investigate if a new coronavirus-type has been detected in South Africa on Friday, with the EU and Britain among those tightening border controls as scientists tried to determine if the mutation was vaccine-resistant.

the World Health Organization warned against hasty measures.

But chiefs of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said.

Scientists still studying the variant identified this week and what new bans would be done to shaky economies across southern Africa.

The variant has a spike protein that's dramatically different from the one in the original coronavirus which COVID-19 vaccines are based on, said the UK Health Security Agency. This raised fears about how current vaccines will go for a successful fight against the more familiar Delta variant, the more likely variant.

"The type of technology that scientists have described has proved to be the most significant variant they have encountered to date," said the British Transport Secretary.

The group of experts, the number one-off exam, discussing the dangers a variant of the racial variant, B.1.1.529, presents, Christian Lindmeier said.

It warned against travel bans.

The WHO recommended countries keep taking risks when they implement (curbs).

Fastly 100 sequences of the variant have been reported and early analysis shows that it has "a large number of mutations" requiring further research, said Lindmeier.

The new variant probably spread to a whole other country.

"The sequence of this variant... was first uploaded by Hong Kong from a case of someone traveling from South Africa", Javid told lawmakers.

It's highly unlikely that more cases have been identified in South Africa and Botswana, and it's likely to spread to another country.

Since that variant has been reported there, but its prime minister has warned that while people couldn't return to southern Africa, there were a few cases of that variant, a lot of them have been reported there.

The report was published in an article on the Ynet website stating that in relation to the health minister, one of the individuals received a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, either before any of the other people came to the health department. A spokesperson for the health ministry couldn't confirm the report.

Bennett said in a statement from his office that she's on the verge of a. "We're currently on the verge of a," Bennett said.

The key to this goal is fast action. Strong decision-making is ours.


In Hong Kong, one epidemiologist said it might be too late for the tightening travel restrictions.

"I think we must recognise that this virus is already in other countries." So now, it will probably be too late," said Ben Cowling from the University of Hong Kong.

South Africa, which will convene its advisory national Coronavirus Command Council on Sunday, speaks to the British authorities to try to get them to reconsider their ban, the Foreign Ministry said.

"Our immediate concern is the damage that this decision will cause to both the tourism industry and the businesses of both countries," Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor said in a statement.

As the continent drew a vengeance of the coronavirus, led by the Delta variant, with many reporting record daily rises in cases.

The new wave and discovery of this new variant will begin in autumn as Europe and the United States enter winter, with more people coming into the indoor space in the lead up to Christmas, which is a breeding ground for bacterial infections.

Germany has declared South Africa a virus-type area; Bahrain and Croatia will ban arrivals from some countries.

India advised all countries to test and screen international travelers from South Africa and other "at risk" countries, while Japan tightened border controls for foreign visitors from South Africa and five other African countries.

The coronavirus has swept the world in the two years since it was first identified in central China in 2000. It fetched almost 260 million people and killed 5,4 million people in the 2nd to three years and ripped back 5.4 million.
