New UK travel ban to SA scuppers Damon Beard's first trip 'home'. Britain has announced it is banning travel from six southern African countries, including South Africa, after SA detected a new Covid-19 variant with a large number of mutations. It is suspending flights from noon today. Britain will also require anyone arriving from banned countries from 4:00 am on Sunday to quarantine in hotels.
The news means that East Coast Gold's 2pm to 6pm weekday presenter Damon Beard will have to cancel his first holiday 'home', planned for mid-December. He chatted to Gordon Graham about the impact of the news in Gordon's More Music Breakfast Show this morning.
