EU needs travel curbs until we know more on Omicron - Spahn

Germany's outgoing Health Minister Jens Spahn insisted on Tuesday that the European Union has to keep travel restrictions until the world finds out more about the Omicron coronavirus variant.

"We need to be careful until we know more, so travel restrictions are important to keep the entry in Europe and Germany as low as possible," Spahn told reporters in Brussels.

The EU imposed a travel ban on all arrivals from seven African countries after they reported cases of the Omicron coronavirus mutation, which is considered to be highly infectious according to preliminary data.
