(Video) Nigerians reacts to removal of country from UK red list due to ripples caused by Omicron variant

The lifting of traveling restrictions on travelers from Nigeria and ten other African countries from a red list over the outbreak and spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 has continued to generate reactions among Nigerians.

Creekvibes News Magazine recalls that the UK had on December 5 announced Nigeria among a red list of countries where travelers except Britons were not allowed to fly in from.

A medical expert, Doctor Casmir Ifeanyi says instead of blacklisting countries, measures should be put in place to stem the spread of the variant.

He said citizens should be educated on the need to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“Rather than red listing Nigeria, one would have expected that the British government, the UK as a developed country with capacity in this area would find intervention programs, means of building capacity and ability to detect is a key evaluation point in global health response so our capacity as African countries to detect is still very low”

In Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial centre citizens react to the removal of Nigeria from the United Kingdom red list saying it is “wrong to treat Nigerians or Africans that way””

As of Tuesday December 14, when the United Kingdom removed Nigeria from its Red List, the West African country had recorded 11 cases of the Omicron Variant.
