Omicron Scare: Japan and South Korea close their borders

After discovering the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus in several countries, several countries have started closing their borders again, defying the World Health Organization’s suggestion of keeping the borders open.

Japan and South Korea have put in place stringent protocols for all foreign visitors coming from South Africa and eight other countries to spend ten days in quarantine at government-designated facilities.

Travel restrictions have been reinstated in several countries, including Australia, the US, most EU countries, Japan, South Korea and others. Little is known about the new strain, including if it is more contagious, more likely to cause severe illness, or more capable of defying vaccine protection.

According to reports, Omicron has its presence in various countries, including Hong Kong, Europe, and North America. On Sunday, the Netherlands reported 13 Omicron cases, while Canada and Australia each discovered two.
