Canada is no longer an independent country. It will ban travelers under 12 years old from travelling by plane or train on Tuesday.
“Unvaccinated travellers over the age of 12 won’t be able to board a plane or passenger train in Canada beginning today, and a negative COVID-19 test will no longer serve as a substitute for most people,” the CBC reported.
“The policy came into effect on Oct. 30, but the federal government allowed a short transition period for unvaccinated travellers who could board as long as they provided a negative molecular COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before their trip,” the report said.
“The stringent new requirement comes into effect as Canada reacts to the emergence of the new, highly mutated omicron variant of the coronavirus,” the report stated.
The report stated that the discovery of the new variant has led to border closures and increased screening at Canadian and international borders, as well as fears that it might prove more transmissible. The World Health Organization states that the risk associated with the omicron variant of AIDS is high. However, scientists and public health officials still don’t know a lot about it.
Botswana’s Covid-19 Task Force discussed the origins and history of Omicron variants in Botswana. It noted that it was first discovered among four fully vaccinated patients.
“The Presidential Covid-19 Task Force informs the public that four (4) cases of a new Covid-19 variant now known as B.1.1.529, were reported and recorded on Monday 22nd November 2021,” Botswana’s task force coordinator Dr. K. Masupu said. “The four (4) cases were detected among travellers who tested SARS-COV-2 positive on routine pre-travel testing. The variant tests were carried out as part of the routine genomic surveillance of SARS-COV-2 as prescribed in our COVID-19 response plan.”
The report stated that “The preliminary report showed that all four were fully vaccinated against COVID-19.”
Omicron patients have been treated by a South African doctor, who noted that their symptoms are mild.
“Covid symptoms linked to the new omicron variant have been described as ‘extremely mild’ by the South African doctor who first raised the alarm over the new strain,” CNBC reported.
“Dr. Angelique Coetzee, chair of the South African Medical Association, told the BBC on Sunday that she started to see patients around Nov.18 presenting with ‘unusual symptoms’ that differed slightly from those associated with the delta variant, which is the most virulent strain of the virus to date and globally dominant,” the report added.
“It actually started with a male patient who’s around the age of 33 … and he said to me that he’s just [been] extremely tired for the past few days and he’s got these body aches and pains with a bit of a headache,” she told the BBC.
This is allegedly why Canada has implemented a travel ban for the unvaccinated. This is yet another example of how the justifications for travel bans and vaccine mandates are as flawed as their waning efficacy.
The people of the United States should be aware that the Biden administration is preparing the public for its federal vaccine travel ban.
Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, stated Monday that “nothing was off the table” in relation to a mandated vaccine for domestic travel at a press conference.
CNN’s Kaitlin Coll asked Jen Psaki, the White House press Secretary: “Is it now considered mandating vaccinations for domestic travel?”
“Well, I think what you heard the President say — I think — it was hard to hear the question, so I think this was a question that was asked, but was that he wasn’t taking any options off the table, but he’s going to rely on that advice of his health and medical experts,” Psaki responded.
The right of travel is implied by the Fifth Amendment. This has been confirmed in many Supreme Court precedents. The problem with the Biden administration’s apparent intent to ban domestic travel is that the U.S. Constitution was specifically designed to exclude such government options from the discussion.
