Guinea Tightens Measures for U.K., S. Africa Travelers on Virus
(Bloomberg) -- 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.
