UK to quarantine guests from nations with excessive COVID-19 danger, Each day Mail says


January 24

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government is preparing to force travellers from countries where there is a high risk of COVID-19 to go into quarantine for 10 days after arriving in Britain, the Daily Mail reported on Saturday.

Travellers from Brazil and South Africa, and neighbouring countries, will be met on arrival and escorted to hotels to quarantine, under plans being discussed by the UK ministers, the Daily Mail said.

Johnson favoured a more targeted approach than making all air passengers go into quarantine, said the report, which added that the quarantine decision would be taken on Monday.

Britain has recorded more than 3.5 million COVID-19 infections — the fifth-highest in the world — and nearly 96,000 deaths.
