New travel rules come into effect as Omicron’s reach expands

New travel rules take effect as Omicron expands New requirements for overseas travel into the UK will take effect early Tuesday morning.
Nigeria has been added to the Travel Red List, and from tomorrow anyone wishing to travel to the UK will be required to take a negative test two days before departure. In Anna Stewart’s report.

The virus is constantly mutating

Dr. Amjad Al-Khouli, an epidemiologist at the World Health Organization, confirmed that vaccines are effective against the new mutant “Omicron”, noting that the virus is constantly mutating, but not necessarily all mutations are important or alarming, meaning that they do not affect the behavior of the virus. They are simple mutations that do not change the behavior of the virus.

Coronavirus and the ongoing spread The travel ban will not prevent the spread of Omicron

The World Health Organization announced, that the Coronavirus, will continue to mutate if we allow it to spread continuously, and the Health Organization stated, that the Omicron mutant has reached at least 23 countries, noting that the travel ban will not prevent the spread of Omicron and the Health Organization called on countries to intensify examinations and vaccination against Corona.

An official at the World Health Organization said that more than 40 mutations linked to the omicron were detected, and the World Health Organization announced that Europe had become the epicenter of the outbreak of the “Omicron” mutant and that the delta mutant had become the most prevalent mutant of the Coronavirus in European countries.

Corona and five major mutations of concern, they were named: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, and finally Omicron

The epidemiologist at the World Health Organization explained that this virus has a greater ability to spread than the previous mutated, Delta, and therefore more procedures and consideration must be followed, and so far we have witnessed five major mutations of concern, which have been named: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and finally Omicron. The five mutations raised concern, and the World Health Organization declared them a cause for concern because they changed the behavior of the virus and became more capable of spreading.
