UK likely to include more countries to its travel quarantine list

The European country of the United Kingdom is likely to include more countries to its travel quarantine list in a bid to defend the country from the threat posed by the Covid-19 outbreak.

At present, several countries such as Belgium, Bahamas and Andorra are in the list. This means that those coming to the UK from the said countries will have to self-isolate for at least fourteen days.

As per a latest report, France may also find a place in the list. The UK has not yet specifically mentioned which all countries will enter the list.

Recently, the UK has warned its citizens not to travel to Belgium, Andorra and Bahamas if there is no urgency.

There is no surprise that Belgium has occupied the top position in the list. Belgium has one of the highest coronavirus case rates in Europe at 49.2 per 100,000 people. To understand the depth of the issue, it is important to compare the case rates of other European countries with Belgium: in the UK, it is 14.3 per 100,000; and in Spain, it is 27.4 per 100,000.
