WHO designates COVID variant found in South Africa as ‘of concern’


The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday designated a new COVID-19 variant detected in South Africa with a large number of mutations as being “of concern,” the fifth variant to be given the designation.
The WHO said in a statement that it had assigned the B.1.1.529 variant the Greek letter Omicron.
The United States will restrict travel from South Africa and seven other countries starting on Monday. The policy was implemented out of “an abundance of caution in light of a new covid-19 variant circulating in Southern Africa.”
