The British government announced on Friday that it would close its borders with Bangladesh, Kenya, Pakistan and the Philippines to prevent the importation of new corona virus strains against vaccines used in the UK.
The Department of Transportation said the decision would take effect on April 9. After this date all travelers coming or crossing from these four countries will be denied entry into the UK.
UK and Irish nationals or UK residents are exempt from this ban, but must comply with 10 days hotel isolation at their own expense.
All four countries have been added to the “red list” of 39 countries considered “high risk” and its passengers have been barred from entering.
The list includes Portugal, twenty Latin American countries and fifteen African countries, including South Africa, Angola, DRC, Malawi, Namibia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Rwanda.
Thanks to advances in vaccination and deaths due to Govt-19 and hospitalization, the United Kingdom launched in March, gradually removing the stringent restrictions on people.
More than 31 million people, or more than half of adults, have already received the first dose of the anti-Govt-19 vaccine, while the government aims to vaccinate all adults by July.
If the government’s timetable for deregulation is not affected by the third wave of pollution, international travel from the UK could resume by May 17.
