The United Kingdom began its mandatory hotel quarantine program for British residents on Monday, with 33 countries entering high-risk countries likely to resist vaccines to stop imports of coronavirus variants.
Regarding the application of this measure, British Health Minister Hancock on Times Radio said, “Everything is going well this morning.”
Under a huge health control program announced last week by the Minister of Health, the UK is forcing all travelers to enter its territory of 33 countries considered “at high risk” for infection from the coronovirus epidemic , To buy a quarantine package of 1,200 pounds sterling, or around 2,000 euros.
Upon arriving at the country’s airports, British residents or Irish arrived from 33 countries in Latin America and Africa, where the new variants were identified in a hotel and kept under observation for 10 days. The package includes all costs of testing and hotel stay with full board.
The government has already banned the arrival of non-residents from these 33 countries, including the United Arab Emirates and Portugal, while it has imposed a 10-day domestic quarantine on passengers arriving from other countries of the world.
