RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Austria joins the group of countries restricting the entry of Brazilians and people who have passed through the country to contain variants of the novel coronavirus.
Europe remains closed to people coming from Brazil, while concerns about insufficient anti-Covid vaccines are growing in several countries.
Austria has announced that as of today passenger flights from Brazil will be banned from landing to prevent the "spread of the dangerous mutation" of the virus. The Brazilian strain of the coronavirus would be more dangerous and was initially detected in Manaus.
The Austrian measure will run until February . . .
