Omicron


Omicron, the recently discovered mutant of COVID-19, can now be seen on the travel industry as all nations impose new travel restrictions and bans across the world.

Reportedly, Morocco, Italy, Japan, Israel, Canada, Australia, and more have already pushed the new rules.

While there are more discussions about the blanket travel bans, the possibility of more countries pushing the same cannot be ruled out.

WHO has also stated that blanket travel bans would not help in reducing the spread of the mutant.

WHO has also advised vulnerable people against travelling.

It says people who are not fully vaccinated, and people over 60 years of age should avoid travelling, especially to places with risk of community transmission
