UK initiates hotel quarantine for travelers from 'red list' countries
CGTN Europe • 2m 38s
From Monday morning, passengers arriving at London Heathrow airport became the first travelers heading into a 10-day quarantine.
New rules are in place for all British and Irish citizens and UK residents who arrive in England after visiting a 'high-risk' country. From now on they will have to self-isolate in hotels and pay $2,436.44 (£1,750) for the accommodation.
The "red list" of countries - 33 in all - includes Portugal, Brazil, and South Africa.
Most international travel is banned, but UK and Irish nationals arriving from any of these countries at five airports in England will have to stay at a designated hotel, get tested, and pay to isolate themselves.
