  • New Covid-19 strain: UK announces closure of all travel corridors

All arrivals to the United Kingdom will have to quarantine and show negative tests for Covid-19 from tomorrow at 4am (GMT), after the government scrapped "travel corridors" from countries with lower caseloads following the emergence of new strains.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is grappling to control a third wave of the virus and prevent the health service from collapse while also racing to vaccinate millions each week.

The isolation period lasts for 10 days unless the passenger tests negative after five days.

"What we don't want to see is all that hard work undone by the arrival of a new variant that is vaccine-busting", he told a news conference, explaining the end of travel corridors at least until February 15.

Travel corridors were introduced in the summer in United Kingdom to allow people travelling from countries with low numbers of coronavirus cases to come to United Kingdom without having to get quarantined on arrival.

On Thursday, Britain banned arrivals from South America, Portugal and some other countries over fears about a variant detected in Brazil.

Britain's current lockdowns ban most global travel meaning that airline schedules are now minimal, but the withdrawal of any quarantine-free travel from Monday will be a further blow for the industry.

United Kingdom (UK) has announced the closure of all travel corridors from Monday in order to "protect against the risk of as yet unidentified new strains" of Covid-19.

Critics say the government has been too slow to act and previously left borders wide open.
