A 10-day quarantine will become compulsory for all those entering the territory of Great Britain from January 18, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on January 15.
Whereas previously there was a transport corridor rule that made it unnecessary for those arriving from some fifty countries and territories to comply with isolation, from Monday that rule will be abolished.
Failure to comply with the self-isolation could be fined from 1,000 to 10,000 pounds
In addition, since January 18, everyone who arrives in the United Kingdom must provide a certificate with a negative test result for coronavirus, made no more than 72 hours before arrival in the country. Attempting to enter without a negative test could result in a £500 fine
A total of 3.2 million people in Britain have already received the vaccine during a routine vaccination campaign on December 8. In addition, since January 4 in the country was introduced a quarantine, and people are forbidden to leave home without a valid reason.
And although doctors believe that in the near future we can expect the situation to stabilize and the incidence of disease to begin to decline, the authorities prefer to stick to tough measures, despite their negative impact on the economy.
