Over-60s, vulnerable should postpone travel due to Omicron: WHO The WHO said on Tuesday that while blanket travel bans would not stop the spread of the Omicron variant, Covid-19 vulnerable people, including the over-60s, should postpone plans to travel abroad. Omicron, the new Covid-19 variant of concern which the World Health Organisation says poses a “very high” risk globally, has prompted many countries to shut their borders. “Blanket travel bans will not prevent the international spread, and they place a heavy burden on lives and livelihoods,” the WHO said in a travel advice statement on Omicron. However, it said persons who are unwell or at risk of developing severe Covid-19 disease and dying, including people 60 years of age or older or those with co-morbidities such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes, should be advised to postpone travel.

Phuket, Thailand, December 2: Bio Kim took the first-round clubhouse lead in the US$1million Laguna Phuket Championship today after shooting an exceptional eight-under-par 62 ‒ which at one point looked like being sub 60. The Korean ‒ who first hit global headlines over a decade ago when he qualified for the PGA Tour as a 20-year-old ‒ made an eagle, seven birdies, and a bogey at Laguna Golf Phuket, where preferred lies were being played. It saw him finish one shot ahead of Australian Travis Smyth, whose 63 was no doubt inspired by the fact he played in the same group as Kim, and Thailand’s Chanachok Dejpiratanamongkol ‒ who won the Singha Phuket Open here in 2017 on the Asian Development Tour. Poor weather stopped play at 5.17 pm meaning 40 players will complete their first-round tomorrow. England’s Steve Lewton was the best of those at five-under with two to play. Kim, whose group played the back nine first, was nine under after 13 holes and on course for an elusive 59 ... » Learn More about Laguna Phuket Golf Championship Round 1 report, results (incomplete): It’s Bio metrics!
