Coronablog - Omikron variant appears in more places, criticism of relaxed testing policy: 'It will speed up the epidemic'

In Europe, a new type of omicron of coronavirus has appeared in more and more countries. At first there was a case of infection in our country, in the meantime there are also reports from the UK, Germany and now also from Italy and the Czech Republic.

The omikron variant was first discovered in South Africa and several countries have since imposed travel bans on people from some countries in South Africa. The British go a little further, all travelers must get a PCR test there and stay in quarantine until they test negative. A mouth mask should also be worn in more places there.

Meanwhile, the United States praised South Africa because scientists there quickly discovered the omikron variant and immediately reported it to the world. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said they are a model for the world.

A Belgian couple boarded the plane from South Africa yesterday in a quarantine hotel in the Netherlands. The couple’s husband Lewis tested positive for coronavirus just as 60 passengers; His wife’s test result was negative.
