Turkey may be the last country popular with British tourists to be put on the government’s quarantine list. New cases of the coronavirus in Turkey reached their highest level since June in 1256, with 21 deaths in the past 24 hours, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said on Twitter on Saturday.

As it stands, the country’s air bridge to the UK remains intact, meaning Britons returning from Turkey do not need to self-isolate for 14 days.

However, the country has seen cases increase in recent weeks and has now recorded a total of 278,117 people, with 5,955 deaths.

This has led to fears that Turkey is following France in being added to the quarantine list by the UK government.

If Turkey’s infection rate continues to rise, it could be placed on government quarantine list

If this is the case, traveling between Great Britain and the southern European country would become particularly difficult.

Turkey has its own strict measures for people arriving there, including temperature checks at the airport.

Anyone with the coronavirus is forced to self-quarantine, sometimes at their own expense.



Coronavirus cases increase in Turkey

Whether or not Turkey is added to the quarantine list depends on its infection rate.

Any country with more than 20 new cases per 100,000 population is placed on the UK government’s watch list.

Currently, there are 18.5 infections per 100,000 population in Turkey, reports The Sun.

This is an increase from the 15.8 recorded last month.

Turkey lifted a partial lockdown on June 1 and plans to reopen schools next month.

If Turkey gets on the ban list, tour operators and airlines will likely stop flights and vacations.

They will then offer a refund or a credit note.

Thousands of UK vacations were rocked earlier this week when several other countries were added to the quarantine list.

Starting at 4 a.m. this morning, everyone returning to the UK from France, the Netherlands, Monaco, Malta, the Turks and Caicos Islands and Aruba had to self-isolate for 14 days.

Brits still looking to get away for some summer sunshine still have a few options.

Airlifts remain intact between the UK and Australia, Croatia, Finland, Hungary and Mann Island, as well as 65 other countries.
