Air bridges are “abandoned” because quarantine trips will be allowed in 75 countries


The British will be able to go on vacation to 75 countries without the need for quarantine upon their return to the UK, according to reports.The British government will effectively abandon its airlift plans and simply end the coronavirus quarantine rules for those arriving from 75 countries so that people can go on vacation, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The newspaper said the UK would soon lift the ban on non-essential travel to almost all EU destinations, the British territories, including Bermuda and Gibraltar, and Turkey, Thailand, Australia. and New Zealand.

A traffic light system will decide in which countries to travel safely, with those classified as green or amber available to vacationers.

The British on vacation in “green” or “amber” countries will not have to isolate themselves for 14 days upon their return.

But people returning from “red” countries should isolate themselves.

Experts have studied how hard coronavirus is in countries, whether the UK can trust its Covid-19 numbers and whether its infection rates are falling, rising or flat.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs currently advises against travel except essential, but that will change this week and people can go on vacation from Monday.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs has agreed that travel advice may be reduced in countries and territories where the risk to public health is no longer “too high” and that, therefore, advice “against non-essential travel” can be lifted.

A spokesperson for the Department of Transport declined to comment immediately.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government has struggled with how to open international travel after imposing a two-week quarantine on arrivals, which has added to the woes of the tourism and travel industry.

Simon Clarke, Minister of Junior Housing, Communities and Local Government, said the government was working on a travel announcement.

“We will communicate this announcement as soon as it is safe,” Clarke told Sky. “We will talk about it again this week. ”

“Obviously, we want to get the tourism industry back on track as quickly as possible and I am sure we will be able to give good news in the near future,” he said.
