Britain adds India to Covid-19 travel 'red list', 103 Indian variant cases in UK

Apr 19, 2021 21:51 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Britain on Monday added India to its Covid-19 travel 'red list'.

This effectively bans all travel from India and makes a 10-day hotel quarantine compulsory for UK residents arriving back to the country.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed the move in the House of Commons as he revealed that 103 cases of the so-called Indian variant had been identified in the UK, of which the 'vast majority have links to international travel'.
