Coming From Eswatani?


This afternoon.

18 more states have been added to the Government’s coronavirus ‘high-risk’ list.

Brazil and South Africa are now joined by Angola, Austria, Botswana, Burundi, Cape Verde, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lesotho, Malawi, Eswatini, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, Tanzania, United Arab Emirates, Zambia and Zimbabwe

Visitors from these countries will have to self-quarantine for a ‘mandatory period of 14 days’.

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly (above) said:

“Under the current Level 5 restrictions nobody should be engaging in non-essential travel at this time. These stringent measures on people arriving to Ireland from 20 states are necessary in responding to the risks posed by variants of concern.

“People who arrive in Ireland must now complete a full mandatory 14-day period of self-quarantine if they have been in any of these states in the previous 14 days. The Government will shortly consider legislation that will require such passengers arriving here to complete this quarantine at a designated facility.”

    When you think of the fact that we had people coming & going from this many weird & wonderful countries every day, it’s amazing that we don’t have pandemics every few years. There is definitely such a thing as too much movement of people, even from a basic environmental point of view.

    It should be for every country. They’re just messing at the edges especially with all these new variants. Such terrible leadership since last year, woeful.

    “… responding to the risks posed by variants of concern.”

    So these international travel restrictions are only introduced now, 11 months on from the first case as a result of that Northern Italy skiing excursion, because of the VARIANTS? Like when asked to explain the high January figures, it was the ‘UK variant’ that was to blame, not the Government’s open/close lockdown strategy! Unbelievable.
