Covid LIVE: New variant panic as WHO assesses highly contagious new strain | UK | News

England has added six countries in southern Africa to its red list, following concerns of a new Covid-19 variant, which could be the deadliest yet.

Flight from South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Eswatini and Zimbabwe will be banned from Friday and officials are reviewing whether there should be a limited return to PCR tests.

According to sources, the new variant could pose  “a potentially significant threat to the vaccine programme which we have to protect at all costs”.
