UK to lift travel bans



The United Kingdom government will be scrapping the travel ban imposed on countries after the detection of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

Daily Mail reported that Grant Shapps, the UK transport secretary convinced authorities to replace the ban with testing even for the fully vaccinated and it is expected that this will be approved and effected this week.

Recall that the UK government placed a temporary ban on air travel from Nigeria and six southern African countries; South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Namibia and Zimbabwe, in a bid to curb the spread of Omicron variant of Coronavirus. 

The recent decision was reached just days after it was reported that the Nigerian government will reciprocate the travel ban placed on Nigeria over the new COVID-19 variant, Omicron.
