India has reported the highest number of COVID-positive cases in any single day, in any country, since the pandemic. New strain variants first identified in India have also appeared in other countries. In reaction, multiple countries across the globe have announced restrictions on travel from India, and more are likely to follow in quick succession, repeating a pattern often seen during the pandemic where there have been surges in reported infections or fatalities. Canada has announced a 30-day ban on flights from India and Pakistan. The UK has banned travel from India, with limited exception for UK citizens and those with residency rights. And Singapore has banned entry by long-term pass holders and short-term visitors who have travelled to India within the past 14 days.
