SYDNEY – The Australian states of New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria, as two major ports of entry in the country, have introduced a 72-hour isolation requirement for all international comers as health authorities look to sequencing the new variant of Omicron for arrivals from southern African countries.

The health authorities von NSW confirmed on Sunday morning that two out of 14 arrivals from countries in southern Africa were positive for COV ID-19 had tested and urgent genome sequencing had started for the Omicron variant.

The variant believed to be more contagious than any previous strain was first discovered in South Africa and approved on Friday by the World Health Organization ( WHO) classified as “Concerning Variant”.

All newcomers from nine countries in southern Africa were asked by the NSW health authorities to self-isolate for 14 days while passengers on flights with positive cases were quarantined in a special health facility Despite growing fears, NSW Prime Minister Dominic Perrottet said the state would stick to its reopening plans “for now”.

“This is a reminder that we still have a long way to go, and we have a long way to go think we have always taken a fair and balanced approach, “Perrottet told the local Sky News agency.

On Sams On the afternoon of the afternoon, the Australian Federal Minister of Health Greg Hunt announced that foreigners from nine South African countries would not be able to enter Australia and that all flights from these countries would be suspended for 14 days as a “precautionary measure”.

Dr. Deborah Cromer of the Kirby Institute at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) said while it was “worrying” the emergence of a new variant was not unexpected.

“Viruses are constantly mutating and taking on new forms, and the level of Existing immunity to a new variant is key to determining the effects a newly emerging strain will have, “said Cromer.

She said border closings would only help give scientists time to assess the effectiveness of existing vaccines against the new variant.

“Closing borders may buy us some time to collect the data to answer these questions (effectiveness of the vaccine against Omicron), but as we did before with both the original strain and the also seen at Delta, a virus will ultimately find its way over these barriers. ” She said.
