The National Assembly and the Ministry of Aviation are considering banning flights from the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries with high rates of COVID-19. The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Aviation, Senator Smart Adeyemi, who stated this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja, said a decision on the issue would be announced next week.

The Federal Government’s plan may not be unconnected with pressures on it to stop further spread of coronavirus by banning flights from nations with high rates of the virus. Although the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 had, on Thursday, imposed fresh requirements on passengers from the UK and South Africa, flights from the two countries were not banned.
