Denmark has banned all flights from the UAE for five days as authorities raise suspicions about covid-19 tests taken by passengers from Dubai, Anadolu news agency reports.

Transport Minister Benny Engelbrecht said passengers coming from Dubai have been diagnosed with fast-spreading variants of COVID-19 and the country will investigate the accuracy of the results of tests carried out in the UAE.

The European country early this year required that anyone entering its territory must show proof of a negative coronavirus test no older than 24 hours.

The Danish government Wednesday extended coronavirus lockdown by three weeks until Feb. 7 due to concerns over a new variant of the virus.
