- Hong Kong's government on Friday said that it'll ban non-Hong Kong residents arriving in eight southern African states from entering territory if they have stayed within the past 21 days.
The government said in a statement that the measure is effective from Saturday. It's in effect on people arriving from Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe.
"Along with South Africa, where the main focus is, no non-Hong Kong residents will be allowed to enter a city if they have stayed in these places within 21 days" said the statement.
A new coronavirus virus virus found in South Africa has forced the European Union, Britain and other states to tighten border controls after researchers sought to determine whether the virus was vaccine-resistant.
