The government of General Paul Kagame is boasting, through its newspaper, The New Times, that “Rwanda was named among the top 10 countries that responded best to Covid-19 outbreak.”

Meanwhile, on January 28, 2021, the UK government announced that it has taken the urgent decision to ban travel from several countries including Rwanda.

The UK says this travel ban is in response to new evidence indicating the likely spread of a coronavirus variant first identified in South Africa. 

Per British announcement, entry to the UK is banned for visitors arriving from Rwanda and several other countries from January 29, 2021, at 1pm. Stay tuned.
