Published

As it is, the executive privilege debate raises important questions. Biden, as sitting president, has declined Trump’s requests for its invocation. Yet Trump insists he can assert it as a former president, to keep buried information to thwart an inquiry — into an effort to disrupt a presidential election’s conclusion — that is obviously very much in the national interest.

Key Highlights

  • More than a dozen countries have reported cases of the new variant, which reportedly is even resistant to anti-Covid vaccines

  • Around 56 countries have supposedly re-imposed stricter travel measures, including India

Geneva: With the new, highly-contagious variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus – Omicron – spreading across the world, several countries have started imposing stricter travel guidelines in order to check the spread of the virus.

But, the World Health Organization on Tuesday warned that blanket travel bans will not prevent the spread of the Omicron strain, despite the global health watchdog classifying it as a ‘variant of concern’.

“Blanket travel bans will not prevent the international spread, and they place a heavy burden on lives and livelihoods. In addition, they can adversely impact global health efforts during a pandemic by disincentivizing countries to report and share epidemiological and sequencing data,” the WHO said in its travel advisory statement.

The WHO further said that countries should rather apply “an evidence-informed and risk-based approach” while imposing travel restrictions in the backdrop of the Omicron variant, such as screening or quarantine of international passengers.

“Measures may include screening of passengers prior to travel and/or upon arrival, and use of SARS-COV-2 testing or quarantine of international travellers after thorough risk assessment,” it said.

More than a dozen countries have reported cases of the new variant, which reportedly is even resistant to anti-Covid vaccines.

Around 56 countries have supposedly re-imposed stricter travel measures, including India.

The Indian government today advised all states and Union Territories to enhance testing and undertake effective surveillance of international travellers, adding that the new variant does not escape the RT-PCR and RAT tests. India has also extended the nationwide Covid-19 containment measures till December 31, though Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said that there are no cases of Omicron in the country so far.
