The UK federal government is poised to put more countries on its quarantine list “straight away” if coronavirus runs “out of control” in them.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden informed Sky News more statements might follow the decision to encourage versus all non-essential journeys to Spain over the weekend due to fears over increasing levels of COVID-19
“It would be foolhardy of the government not to those impose restrictions if we think there is a risk and we will impose those restrictions as soon as we think the risk has materialised,” he stated.
“We cannot risk importing it again from other countries where incidences are rising.”
Mr Dowden added the decision to enforce any brand-new constraints will be taken following an evaluation by the Joint Biosecurity Centre – established by ministers at the start of the pandemic – and England’s primary medical officer.
“We are at a very risky moment with this pandemic,” he stated.
” It’s increasing worldwide and it might hold true we have to enforce quarantine procedures to stop the infection dispersing.
” So long as you know that threat and comfy with that threat, proceed and take your break.”
