UK imposes hotel quarantine for travelers from Covid hotspots

 

British people arriving home from 30 "high risk" countries will have to undergo a 10-day hotel quarantine at their own expense, as the United Kingdom tightens border controls to try to curb one of the world's worst Covid-19 outbreaks.
Announcing the measure, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the tougher new rules would apply to travelers from "red list countries where we have particular concern about new variants."
Non-UK residents will be refused entry, while British citizens and permanent residents will be picked up straight from the airport and transferred to government-provided accommodation where they will begin their mandatory stay.
Meals and hotel expenses in what is one of the world's most expensive cities could end up costing travelers more than $2,000 for a 10-day quarantine.
The announcement came the same week the UK reached the grim milestone of 100,000 coronavirus deaths — the first country in Europe to do so.
Johnson also said that travelers will be questioned as to their purpose for travel. "I want to make clear that under the stay-at-home regulations it is illegal to leave home to travel abroad for leisure purposes and we will enforce this at ports and airports by asking people why they are leaving and instructing them to return home if they do not have a valid reason to travel," he said.
UK Home Secretary Priti Patel later announced that people wishing to travel out of the UK will have to first make a declaration proving that their journey is essential.

  1. About $2500 USD?! At their own expense?! That’s way too much for a mandatory 10-day quarantine for travelers!

    1. Unless there is an absolute need to travel then you just dont travel these days. And by absolute need then I really mean almost life or death.

    2. Yep no need to travel if u dont have money to pay that..our country posed 14 days quarantine which is standard here..no need complaining..

    1. @samurai sorrow Moving around freely without thoughts for the virus is the reason the US leads in ALL the categories you don’t want to lead in; deaths, hospitalization, infections. Grow up and grab a mask imbecile.

    2. Yes, I think Boris is going to be battered for allowing flights in without quarantine for so long, when the inevitable inquest comes.

  2. Razor gangs were criminal gangs that dominated the Sydney crime scene in the 1920s. After the passage of the Pistol Licensing Act 1927, the Parliament of New South Wales imposed severe penalties for carrying concealed firearms and handguns. Sydney gangland figures then chose razors as preferred weapons, for their capacity to inflict disfiguring scars

  3. After working an 8 hr day it sure would be nice to see politicians do the same.

    Those who work the hardest get paid the least.

  4. Good. Canada is doing the same. And, no one should be going anywhere right now. Stay local, get vaccinated, save lives. Come September, if we do these things, we can get back to some sort of normal.

  5. UK 117,396 NZ 26 The UK has 4,515 Covid deaths for every NZ Covid death.
    NZ took the WHO simple 3 point plan seriously last February.
    Both the UK and NZ are islands. The UK has an area of 245,000 sqkm while NZ has 268,000 sqkm.
    After 6 months with only 1 Covid fatality in New Zealand, watching UK news is like stepping back in time.

  6. do not understand why these travelers are complaining about having to pay to be quarantine. What did they expect and unless its an emergency, why are people still traveling?

  7. Illness is now a disease? Minute 9:51.
    Seriously doctor.
    I know people that got over it in 48 hrs.
    Do they still have this disease?

  8. Well, up here in Canada, we do this for travelers from all over the world. Only 4 airports still open; Toronto, Montréal, Calgary and Vancouver.

  9. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted”.
    Matthew 23 NIV

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
    “If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.”

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.
