Some South Africans will no longer have the privilege of entering the United States of America
This is as a result of the new variant of COVID-19 which was recently discovered in the country
Meanwhile, Brazil and Europe will also be in the same category as those banned by the USA
In what will come as a big blow to some South Africans, they will no longer be able to enter the United States of America.
This will also affect anybody who had recently been to the African country.
President Joe Biden will impose the ban in a bid to contain the spread of a new variant of COVID-19, Reuters reports.
Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC’s principal deputy director said.
“We are adding South Africa to the restricted list because of the concerning variant present that has already spread beyond South Africa.”
According to the government, this is in an effort to protect Americans and also to reduce the risk of these variants spreading and worsening the current pandemic.
Then-President Donald Trump directed on Jan. 18 those restrictions on Brazil and Europe be lifted effective Tuesday but Biden’s proclamation will rescind that decision.
