Are these just empty words or just mere hypocrsy! Our Covid 19 numbers are still, contrary to some other countries, very high! I can't understand the government intention of establishing a contamination corridor with one of the worse affected countries just to save the touristic season a make a few coins (pounds) apparently at the cost of irresponsibly increasing a well known and unnecessary risk!
