The Philippines government has decided ban travellers from Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka from entering the country in efforts to prevent the spread of the highly infectious Covid-19 variant first found in India, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea said.

In a memorandum issued on Wednesday, Medialdea said all passengers coming from or who have been to these countries within 14 days shall be prohibited from entering the Philippines from Friday to 14, reports Xinhua news agency.

According to the memorandum, arrivals before Friday who come from or have been to these four countries will be allowed to enter but will be required to be isolated in government-run quarantine facilities for 14 days regardless of a swab test result.

The Philippines has already banned travellers from India until May 14 due to the deadly Covid resurgence in the South Asian giant.
