1G rule on vacation – first country only allows entry for vaccinated people

As the first country in Africa, Kenya is planning to introduce a 1G rule for travelers. The corona measure should come into effect shortly before Christmas.

Nairobi – Kenya wants to be the first African country to only allow corona vaccinated people to enter the country. So far, a similar regulation is only known in Costa Rica, South America.

There, access to restaurants, hotels, shops, fitness studios, museums, cinemas, national parks and other non-essential facilities is only allowed to people with a full corona vaccination – which makes a vacation impossible for unvaccinated people, although entry to Costa Rica is theoretically possible allowed is.

Corona: Kenya plans 1G rule for the entry of Europeans

A final vote is still needed, as the editorial network Germany reports. However, the Kenyan government plans to introduce the new rule for Europeans from December 21st. The background is the high number of cases that would make Europe the new corona hotspot. The country’s health ministry therefore called for a kind of lockdown for unvaccinated people.

The aim is that Europeans will soon only be allowed to enter the country with a full corona vaccination – it is not yet known whether there should be an additional compulsory test. Until now, entry into Kenya was possible with a negative PCR test. The new regulations for children have not yet been discussed either. In the country itself, vaccination is recommended for everyone over the age of twelve.

Corona rules in Kenya: Further restrictions planned in the country

In addition to the entry restriction, the East African country also wants to restrict access to many facilities such as hotels, bars and national parks to vaccinated people. With this, Kenya is also reacting to the low vaccination quota in its own country – so far only 4.3 percent of the population have been fully vaccinated, around 8 percent have received a first dose. While initially there was hardly any corona vaccine available, the government is now encountering a lack of acceptance of the vaccine, as stated in the RND report. Cans had to be destroyed every day because the offer was not used.

“It is very important that we do not lag behind in this new world order, especially because we are a popular travel destination for many people in the world. We have to show the world that we show solidarity when using vaccines as a means to contain Covid-19 when we welcome visitors to our national parks, on our beaches and in our hotels, “said the Kenyan Health Department regarding the low Corona -Vaccination rate.

Meanwhile, a new corona variant has been discovered in South Africa. The first countries are already reacting to this with measures. In Germany, health politician Karl Lauterbach warns of the mutation. (fk)
