The detection of a new coronavirus variant in southern African nations has set off alarm bells globally. The UK and many European Union nations have announced travel curbs, and scientists fear another Covid-19 wave in the region.
In a statement, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen proposed to “activate the emergency brake to stop air travel from the southern African region”. The new coronavirus variant, B.1.1.529, was first detected in Botswana. The variant has spread to South Africa as well, and scientists believe it has a major role in the sudden spike in new Covid-19 infections in the country.
