UN, 3 Dec – UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called the travel bans for residents of certain countries and regions punitive and ineffective in the context of the recently identified omicron COVID-19 strain.
“With a virus that truly knows no borders, travel restrictions that isolate any one country or region are unfair, punitive and ineffective,” Guterres wrote in Twitter
“I urge all governments to instead consider multiple testing for travelers, along with other appropriate and truly effective measures,” he added.
