Britain needs to get the travel industry moving again – PM

0 85

“We need to get people, get the travel industry moving again,” Johnson told reporters.

“We want an approach that is as simple as we can possibly make it.”

Meanwhile, Britain recorded another 138 coronavirus-related deaths, the highest daily total since March 17, according to official figures released on Tuesday.

The total number of coronavirus-related deaths in Britain now stands at 129,881. These figures only include the deaths of people who died within 28 days of their first positive test.

The country also reported another 21,691 coronavirus cases in the latest 24-hour period, bringing the total number of coronavirus cases in the country to 5,923,820.

Britain reopened its borders to large parts of the world on Monday, scrapping quarantine for fully vaccinated arrivals from the European Union, excluding France, and the United States.

But the boost for the travel industry was dimmed by speculation that the government could also soon slap new rules on holidays.

The Times newspaper reported a COVID-19 warning against trips to Spain, the UK’s most popular destination, was likely.

Spain could go on a new category of risk – the “amber watchlist” – meaning it could be upgraded to “red” at short notice, with arrivals having to quarantine in hotels, the Times said.

Asked about the possibility of an “amber watchlist” Johnson said that people had to remember that COVID-19 remained dangerous.
