Fauci says that the government feels bad for the African travel ban that had been put in place. They are going to re-evaluate the policy. The fact is well known to all of us that the omicron variant of the coronavirus had been found in South Africa.
This had caused a lot of people and by people, we mean high ranking people who are holding positions in the government, and then they have decided to put in place a lot of travel bans to the country or continent of South Africa.
This seems like a seemingly move that needed to be done. But now several countries across the world had got the omicron variant of the coronavirus spreading around them. The United States had been feeling bad about it.

This is coming from according to Fauci. It is indeed a complaint that had been coming from South Africa. There had been complaints from the World Health Organization too saying that the governments had taken the decision to shut off one of the world parts based on some info.
“That ban was done at a time when we were really in the dark – we had no idea about what was going on, except that there had been an explosion of cases of omicron in South Africa,” Fauci said on “State of the Union.”

“So when the ban was put on, it was to give us time to figure out what was going on.” “Now that we have more and more information about cases in our own country and worldwide, we’re looking at that very carefully on a daily basis,” Fauci continued.
“Hopefully, we’ll be able to lift that ban in a quite reasonable period of time.” That is all that we know for now.
