President Biden Unveils Stricter Covid-19 Travel Rules.

President Joe Biden has unveiled stricter Covid-19 travel rules as the US confirmed a handful of cases of the Omicron variant from coast to coast.

Mr Biden said his plan does not include shutdowns or lockdowns and does not expand vaccine mandates.

Cases have been detected in California, Colorado, Minnesota, New York and in Hawaii, where authorities informed that there is no person with recent travel history.

Report says the variant has now been found up to thirty countries and it is still not clear whether the highly mutated Omicron strain is associated with more transmission or more risk of evading vaccines.
