In action to Omicron cases increasing throughout the nation, the UK federal government has actually chosen to ditch its red list because it is no longer reliable.
Since December 14 th, the red list included 11 nations– Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The nation has actually eliminated all 11 nations from the red list since limitations are thought about practically outdated due to the spread of Omicron.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid informed Parliament, “Now that there is neighborhood transmission of Omicron in the UK and Omicron has actually spread out so commonly throughout the world, the travel red list is now less efficient in slowing the attack of Omicron from abroad.”
