British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has today announced that anyone entering the UK will be forced to take a PCR test within 2 days of arrival in the country and self isolate until a negative result is received.
Furthermore, the “red list” requiring 11 nights forcibly confined to a hotel room at a cost to the traveller of £2,285 has now been extended to arrivals from 10 Southern African countries. More countries will undoubtedly follow.
Additionally, face coverings will once again be mandatory in shops and on public transport throughout the country, unless a medical exemption is claimed.
Clearly, the UK is following continental Europe into the vortex of panic and is once again pulling up the drawbridge.
These measures will not be the last to be announced in the UK this Winter.
Feel free to discuss these measures on the UK forum.
