4 “The current ban, which started with South Africa and now extends to 13 other countries, is completely illogical, considering that China, the United States and Germany are the main COVID-19 territories.

5 “APRA fully aligns itself with the position of Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, President of the African Development Bank, on the unfair, unfair and ridiculous treatment of Africa.

6 “What is happening is nothing less than travel apartheid that will damage African economies, endanger even more lives and threaten livelihoods,” the association said.

7 According to APRA, if the world is looking for a COVID scapegoat, Africa is the least qualified candidate because, as scientific findings show, the continent is still the safest place to be.

8 “This may not be to the liking of the most developed economies in the world, but it is the truth.

9 “At a time when Europe and America are entering the winter season with fears that COVID-19 victims will increase significantly, it is ridiculous that Africa is being singled out for a ban.

10 “The African Union must speak now, African leaders must rise up in defense of their continent.

11 “We call on the World Health Organization (WHO) to prevail over those countries that have imposed an unfair travel ban on African countries to lift these discriminatory restrictions immediately.

12 “COVID-19 should not be an excuse for the reintroduction of apartheid into world affairs,” the association said.
