Guinea Tightens Measures for U.K., S. Africa Travelers on Virus


Guinea’s National Health Security Agency stepped up control measures for travelers coming from the U.K. and South Africa as both countries face a resurgence in coronavirus cases.

In addition to requiring a negative polymerase chain reaction test certificate, travelers will be tested on arrival and will remain in quarantine while awaiting results, the agency said in a statement.

The measures are appropriate following the emergence of a new variant of Covid-19 in both countries which appears to be more virulent and contagious, it said.
