Turkey on Friday imposed a ban on travel from five African countries after the emergence of a new coronavirus variant.
"Travel from Botswana, Republic of South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia, and Zimbabwe to our country through all our land, air, sea, and rail border crossings will not be allowed as of tonight," Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said on Twitter.
