African Union Demands End to Omicron Travel Restrictions

The African Union has firmly called for an urgent end to travel restrictions imposed on member states, saying the measures effectively penalize governments for a timely data share in line with international health regulations.

The AU said in a statement that the measures act “as a disincentive for information sharing in the future, potentially posing a threat to health security on the continent and globally.”

The European Union states, the United States, and Britain, among other nations such as Israel, imposed travel curbs on several African countries after they recorded several cases of the Omicron variant, which is considered highly infectious.
