The United Kingdom decides to tighten Corona restrictions for all arrivals

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Saturday that Britain will require all incoming travelers to undergo a quarantine until they test the new Corona virus (Covid-19) with a negative result, after the emergence of the new mutant "Omicron".

"Now we need to go further and implement a new testing system," Johnson said at a press conference hours after confirming the first two cases of the new mutant in Britain.

Currently, all Britons and foreigners are required to undergo a Covid-19 test (BCR) two days after arriving in the UK.

Under the new rules, they will have to go into quarantine pending the outcome, a major tightening of restrictions in an effort to control the spread of the new mutation.

“I hope very much that we will be in a strong position to cancel these measures again,” Johnson said, pledging to review them in three weeks, that is, before Christmas, and pointed out that the mandatory wearing of masks, a step abandoned by his government earlier this year, will return, Without specifying when it will be implemented.
