The World Health Organization has encouraged countries to keep their borders open, despite fears about the Omicron variant of Covid-19, as South Africa denounces global travel restrictions that it has called “unjustified.”
Avoiding shutting down borders, the WHO said, will prevent a “heavy burden on lives and livelihoods.”
If restrictions are put in place, the organization warned, they should not be “unnecessarily invasive or intrusive.”
Despite the plead by WHO , US Presidents Joe Biden announced on Twitter that he is closing borders on Southern Africa.
Omicron is not a ‘South African variant’, it’s a variant that was spotted & reported by brilliant South African scientists so fast the world has a chance to get on top of it. Could have originated anywhere.
