France travel ban set to further isolate Brazil over coronavirus response

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “France travel ban set to further isolate Brazil over coronavirus response” – below is their description.

France is suspending all flights to and from Brazil to curb the spread of a new Covid-19 variant found in the South American country, Prime Minister Jean Castex said on Tuesday. Experts say the Brazilian variant, known as P1, is particularly virulent and partly to blame for a sharp increase in the country’s coronavirus death toll in March.
