Comprehensive US Consumer News and Commercial Channel (CNBC), "New York Times" reported on November 26, South African scientists recently announced that new variant viruses have exceeded expectations. A few hours later, the Britain issued a ban on passengers from southern Africa countries, other European countries and the United States.

South African Health Minister Joe Fraahla, said on the 26th that such a measure is "unreasonable", "this reaction made by this unreasonable thing is really no reason."

He criticizes other countries "I want to push responsibility to" South Africa, not in accordance with WHO's guidance.

On the 25th, the scientist who announced this new variant, Kaudu Natal Research and Innovative Sequencing Platform, Tulio de Oliveira, said: "I made a one for people. I am sorry for very radical decisions. "

Just completed the global health experts, Olivila told reporters that he believes that the decision of South Africa announced its research discovery will be internationally supported.

The economy of South Africa and Botswana rely on tourists from the United States, Europe and China. Lindiwe Sisulu said that the temporary travel ban is "devastating".

Earlier this year, South African diplomats and scientists have lobbying the British government to demonstrate their ban on tourism.

"We have tried from the red list in the UK, but we didn't know without notice," Xusu said.

"Perhaps our scientists track the ability of some varieties and become our greatest weaknesses. We are discovered that he is punished because of the efforts to do."

Recently, a variant called "the most ferocious" new crown virus in Botswana and South Africa spread in African countries such as Botswana and South Africa. What is worrying is that many experts describe this virus "very terrible", which may be the most fierce that they have found so far, they have seen the worst variant virus, and the degree of mutation exceeds expectations.
