NANTUCKET, Mass — U.S. President Joe Biden said on Friday his administration was not considering new vaccine mandates following the discovery of a new COVID-19 variant in South Africa, which led to travel bans from that country and seven other nations.

“We don’t know a lot about the variant except that it is of great concern,” Biden told reporters. “I decided that we are going to be cautious.”
