The World Health Organization is calling for the lifting of travel bans
Travel bans should be lifted or eased, the World Health Organization said. It has been shown, even in the case of the Omicron strain, that these restrictions were not effective. Moreover, they have generated additional economic and social stress, conform dw.com.
WHO says travel restrictions do not add value to the pandemic. It does not limit or isolate the spread of the new coronavirus. The UN health organization updated its international health regulations during an emergency meeting held by videoconference in Geneva.
"The failure of travel restrictions introduced after the detection and reporting of Omicron to limit the international spread of Omicron demonstrates the ineffectiveness of such measures.
"Travel measures - such as masking, testing, isolation / quarantine and vaccination - should be based on risk assessments and avoid placing a financial burden on international travelers."
The WHO also said that the requirement to provide proof of vaccination against Covid-19 for international travel may not be necessary as the "only way or condition" that allows international travel.
In the end, someone says with a subject and predicate that all these measures and restrictions aimed at international travel do nothing but destroy the economy, degrade the social situation and put a much greater financial burden on the citizen. Not to mention the fact that aviation and tourism have been almost irreparably destroyed in the near future.
