Omicron: Why We Placed Travel Ban On Nigeria –British High Commissioner

British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, has disclosed why the government of the United Kingdom (UK) placed travel ban on Nigeria.

In this exclusive  interview with Daily Sun, Laing explained that majority of cases in the UK of the COVID-19 Variant of Concern (VOC) Omicron were traced to Nigeria and South Africa.

Amongst other issues, the British Envoy said the ban has nothing to do with any sort of discrimination towards Nigeria or Nigerians.

“At the time the decision was made, the vast majority of cases in the UK of the COVID-19 Variant of Concern (VOC) Omicron had clear links to overseas travel from South Africa and Nigeria.

As of 4 December, there were 25 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Variant Of Concern Omicron in the UK with travel links to Nigeria.

The UK government took what is a precautionary action by adding Nigeria to the red list to help slow down the seeding of this variant in the UK from abroad – this will buy time for our world-leading scientists to learn more about Omicron, as there is still significant uncertainty”, she said.
