Bahrain has banned entry to travellers from four more African states, increasing the number of banned countries on its red list to 10, due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

That's according to the state news agency (BNA), which cited a decision by the country's Civil Aviation Affairs.

The four additional countries are Malawi, Mozambique, Angola and Zambia.

The ban excludes Bahraini citizens and residency visa holders, it said.

Bahrain on Friday banned entry to travellers from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Eswatini.
