Omicron: The European Union (EU) on Monday lifted a travel ban imposed on flights arriving from South Africa after nearly a month in the hope of preventing the spread of the new variant of the coronavirus, ‘Omicron’. Omicron was first identified in South Africa in late November last year. After this, the organization of 27 countries had banned travelers coming from that area. Due to Omicron, there was a rapid increase in the cases of infection in South Africa.

Relaxation in the rules of quarantine and testing
In South Africa, initially the rules of quarantine and testing of exposure to the infected were also relaxed but were later withdrawn. According to the sero survey, antibodies were found in 79 to 93 percent of people over the age of 50 who were or were not vaccinated against Kovid-19, the same category that had more cases of hospitalization in previous waves. Sero survey data shows that a large population of the country has developed immunity to severe infection of Kovid from natural infection and even before vaccination.
