And the “Flight Aware” website reported that 2,028 flights were canceled around the world as of 08:20 the United States (13:20 GMT).

Meanwhile, data from FlightAware indicated that 448 flights were canceled within the city United State Or from or to it so far on Friday.

On Thursday, United Airlines and Delta Air Lines said they had canceled dozens of flights scheduled for Christmas Eve, after many of its cabin crew and other staff were infected with the A.ويمكرون.

The world was expecting more détente by Christmas, this December, due to the availability of vaccines, and some improvement in the epidemiological situation, but the emergence of the new mutant late last month, turned back the clock.

Many countries in Europe were forced to re-impose strict restrictions, in order to avoid an “epidemic setback”, so the Netherlands announced a strict closure until mid-January, while other countries, including Ireland, chose to restrict the attendance of restaurants and bars.

The new closures constitute painful blows to the global economy, which was awaiting this period of the year, in order to achieve a recovery, after it suffered heavy losses during the years 2020 and 2021, due to the Corona epidemic.

Those wishing to travel faced wholesale obstacles, whether because many countries live in a turbulent epidemiological situation, which does not allow entertainment, or because they fear that the decisions to close the borders will surprise them, and they will remain stuck abroad.

These financial burdens have increased on the shoulders of those wishing to travel, while the resources of many have been affected, as a result of the economic crisis that is afflicting the world, as a result of the Corona epidemic.

On November 29, the United States banned entry to non-Americans who were in South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi “to be careful” of the omicron mutant that was discovered in South Africa.

The official said that the US public health authorities recommended lifting travel restrictions because maintaining them would not have a significant impact on infections in the country, given the widespread transmission of infection in the United States currently.

The US official added that there would be no need to develop a vaccine for the “Omicron” mutant of the Corona virus, because current vaccines and booster doses are very effective in containing it.
