BORIS Johnson is "concerned" about a THIRD new strain of Covid, which has been found in Brazil and Japan. The PM admitted this afternoon he was worried about yet another new variant which is more easily transmitted but promised Britain's border controls were enough to stop infections coming in from abroad. Chair of the Health Select Committee, Jeremy Hunt, said today that experts on Nervetag were worried about a strain which had escaped from Brazil over to Japan - leading to flight bans and even tighter lockdowns. Speaking to MPs this afternoon, the PM said: "Yes you’re absolutely right, we are concerned about the new Brazilian variant. "We already have tough measures, as you know, to stop from new infections come from abroad. "We are taking steps to do that in response to the Brazilian variation." Britain has banned direct flights from South Africa and a number of other nations to try and stop the even more contagious form of Covid from getting to the UK.
