NYC mayor Bill de Blasio calls for full travel ban from the UK to the US as highly contagious ‘super-Covid’ spreads

NEW York City mayor Bill de Blasio has called for a full travel ban from the UK to the US as highly contagious "super-Covid" spreads.

De Blasio made the comments during his daily press conference on Tuesday morning.

"Right now you can still get on a plane in London and not even have proof you have a negative test, then come to New York City and merrily spread the disease," he asked. "Why is that going on. Why?"
