All arrivals to the UK will have to quarantine and show negative tests

Britain’s government says it is looking at requiring all incoming travellers to isolate in hotels. All arrivals to the UK will have to quarantine and show negative tests for Covid-19 from today, after the government scrapped “travel corridors” from countries with lower caseloads following the emergence of new strains. The Sunday Times said the government planned to go further, emulating countries such as Australia and New Zealand in requiring travellers to self-isolate in hotels at their own charge, using GPS and facial-recognition technology to check they are staying put.
