New strain of COVID in UK triggers global panic

Dozens of countries around the globe are quickly banning travel from the United Kingdom as a new strain of the coronavirus has been discovered in that country.

Countries which already issued a travel ban include Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Iran, Colombia and Morocco, Iram, Saudi Arabia.

Even Jamaica, which depends on the UK for tourist arrivals, has suspended flights from there.

According to the BBC, the new strain is spreading faster than the original, but it is not believed to be more deadly.

The BBC also reported the World Health Organisation saying: “Along with the UK, the same mutation of the COVID-19 virus has also been detected in the Netherlands, Denmark and Australia.”

Officials say there is no evidence to suggest the new variant reacts differently to vaccines which are currently being issued to the UK public.

The UK has implemented new, stricter restrictions in sections of south-east England — including London — in a bid to curb the rapidly spreading virus.

    If bvi shuts down all ministers should and persons issuing orders, their pay must be immediately suspended so they can share in the burden its only reasonable. This covid is wearing out the patience of the people, tyrants are abusing their power. And distorting data to increase their control over the people.

    We need to go back to our 14 days quarantine. This 4 days thing just isn’t working. On what scientific evidence was this decision based anyway? Once there is life, there is hope. Once dead, where is hope?
