The UK will ban flights from six African countries as it investigates a new option.

The UK will temporarily ban flights from six African countries starting Friday as the country’s health ministry investigates a new variant of the coronavirus.

Health Minister Sajid Javid did not name the country on Twitter on Thursday. But he said six countries will be added to the country’s red list, requiring British travelers arriving from those countries to quarantine on arrival.

“More data is required, but we are now taking precautions,” he said.

Earlier Thursday, scientists in South Africa identified a new variant whose mutations indicate a “great leap in evolution.” This option leads to a surge in new infections.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, several options have emerged. One of the main concerns with new options is whether they will stunt progress in the fight against the pandemic or limit the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Just weeks ago, the UK announced it would stop requiring travelers to be quarantined at government-designated hotels, removing the last seven countries from its red list for coronavirus risk.

The change removed restrictions on passengers arriving from Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.

Since then, Mr Javid said the government will continue to reserve a number of hotel rooms “on standby” in case quarantine requirements are reinstated.
