Prime Minister Justin Trudeau extended a ban on flights from the
United Kingdom this week – only days before the
traditionally-heavy holiday travel season – in a bid to stop a new
variant of Covid-19 from making its way to Canada.
“To prevent the new variant of Covid-19 from spreading in
Canada, we’re extending the temporary suspension of passenger
flights from the UK for another two weeks, until Jan. 6,” the
Canadian prime minister tweeted two days before Christmas.
“We’ll continue to monitor the situation and do
whatever it takes to keep you safe,” wrote Trudeau.
Canada imposed the ban on flights from the UK after a new form
of coronavirus which has spawned the global pandemic was discovered
there. The virulence of the new strain of the virus is as yet
unknown but public safety officials in Canada are choosing to err
on the side of caution.
