European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced that the European Union had proposed to suspend all air travel to and from countries with cases of new COVID variant, speaking from Brussels on Friday.
“The European commission proposed today to member states to activate the emergency brake on travels, coming from Southern Africa and other hit countries to limit this new variant’s propagation. All air travel to these countries needs to be suspended until we understand the dangers of this new variant,” said von der Leyen.
Belgium is the first European country where a case of the new variant was detected.
Ursula von der Leyen stressed the need to act ‘very rapidly in an efficient and unified manner.’
