Closed petition Remove Angola from the red list

We would like Angola to be taken off the red list. Based on the statistics Angola has presented less cases than many others European countries as well as the number of death by COVID-19.

More details

Despite the difficulties found on the Angolan health system and the issues evolving the acquisition of the vaccine they have managed to provide vaccine to 2% of the population for the first and second doses and it is working to ensure the vaccination process is conducted with no delays, due to the above and the relationship Angola has with the United Kingdom as many Angolan students also enrol in universities in the UK we would like to know if it would be possible to review the travel ban.
