  • A new variant of Covid-19, B.1.1.529, which it’s feared may be more transmissible and resistant to vaccines, has been discovered in southern Africa

  • Travel restrictions on six nations in the region, including South Africa and Zimbabwe, will come in from Sunday - with UK and Irish residents arriving after that required to quarantine in a hotel

  • These restrictions will be reviewed in three weeks time

  • Experts from the World Health Organization are meeting in South Africa to discuss the heavily mutated variant - described as “the worst one we’ve seen so far” by one expert

  • However, another scientist has argued it does not necessarily mean the world is headed back to “square one” given how early the variant was discovered

  • Several other countries, including France, Italy and Germany have introduced travel restrictions on southern African countries

  • Health Secretary Sajid Javid has described the emergency of the variant as of “huge international concern”

  • Cases of the variant have been identified in Hong Kong and Israel - but not yet in the UK

Just had my second jab last week (under duress I might add) I recon I can hold out until at least this time next year before I get the booster.

How are they forcing it on you? What are they withholding?
