    South Africa has called for a fairer global distribution of Covid-19 vaccines – saying that Britain and other wealthier nations won’t be safe until “everyone is safe”.

    Britain has moved to restrict travellers from South Africabecause of an aggressive new mutation of the virus there.

    However one of South Africa’s top scientists said the move would not stop transmission of the virus and that required effective vaccination programmes in all countries.
