Global report: South Africa bans sale of alcohol to combat corona virus

Germany says infectious variant has been present since November; Spain establishes Covid vaccine registry

 

In India, six cases of a more infectious variant of the coronavirus have been found in people entering the country from the United Kingdom, while South Africa imposed a ban on alcohol sales and ordered the closure of all bars as it battles a resurgence of the virus, including another new variant.

 

All six infected people in India are in isolation and their fellow travellers are being tracked down, the health ministry said.

 

India suspended all flights from Britain until the end of the month because of concerns about the contagious variant, but about 33,000 passengers had flown in since late November before the ban was enforced, the ministry said. Civil aviation authorities said the ban would likely remain in effect into the new year.

 

In Germany, health officials said the new variant sweeping across the U.K. has been present since November after it was detected in a patient who died in the north of the country.
