BRITS’ summer holidays to sunshine destinations were handed a glimmer of hope as ministers opted to impose strict hotel quarantine on high-risk destinations.
The new measures, imposed to stop the spread of potential vaccine-busting Covid mutations, are set to be introduced on nations where new strains have emerged.
It means strict isolation rules, which will see returning passengers fork out around £1,500 for a ten-day stay in a hotel, will only apply to countries already on a travel ban list.
It’s understood it will include South Africa and Brazil where new strains have emerged, alongside Portugal, and the Cape Verde Islands.
And it has been suggested it could even go as far as Dubai – dealing a blow to influencers by adding UAE to a list of up to 30 “high risk” countries.
