JAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesia has added the United Kingdom, Norway and Denmark to the list of countries banned from entering the Southeast Asian nation due to the spread of COVID-19, while Hong Kong has been removed, a senior minister said on Monday.

Minister Luhut Binsar Panjaitan said the countries had been added to the list as a precautionary measure after Indonesia identified its first case of the omicron variant last week.
