Panama blocks travelers from eight African countries due to Omicron variant

Panama on Thursday said it would temporarily ban the entry of travelers from eight African countries due to concerns over the spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant.
The restriction applies to travelers who have been to South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe or Malawi within a two-week period, Panama’s government said in a statement.

Panamanians and residents of the country who are vaccinated must present a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arriving in the country, while those who are not inoculated must place themselves in “preventative quarantine,” the government said.

Many other countries around the world have imposed travel curbs since South Africa announced last week it had detected the new coronavirus variant.

Another dumb idea stoppng it. The virus has mild affects and nobody has died of it so they should promote the spread of it so people can build natural ammunity and stop with the blood clot shots. But those in power love fear porn and lots of stupid sheeple follow along.
