China bans flights; Covid-19

China is to suspend flights to and from the UK, joining a growing list of countries who have instituted travel bans in light of a new variant of coronavirus, its Foreign Ministry has announced.

It did not offer details on when flights would stop.

On Tuesday, the Chinese Visa Application Service Centre in London said it would suspend operations until further notice.

Non-Chinese passport holders from the UK had already been banned from travelling to China in November.
