UN will seek action on travel restrictions

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says he will be asking governments to reverse trade and travel restrictions unless they have a clear scientific basis, in an effort to ensure solidarity during global health crises like the current swine flu outbreak.
Dr. David Nabarro, the senior U.N. coordinator for influenza, said countries are required under the 2005 International Health Regulations to inform the World Health Organization of the public health rationale behind measures like China's detention of Mexican travelers over swine flu concerns.
Nabarro stressed that WHO is not recommending travel restrictions related to the swine flu outbreak.
