Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday extended a ban on flights from the United Kingdom by another two weeks.

The ban will remain in place until mid-January in a bid to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus variant.

Duterte also ordered a 14-day quarantine for passengers that came from or transited in the UK, and from countries where the more infectious COVID-19 variant was detected.
