France has become the latest European country to introduce restrictions on UK tourists due to the spread of the Indian coronavirus variant.
The French government announced that from 31 May, anyone arriving from the UK must quarantine for seven days.
Reports say Germany had imposed a two-week quarantine on UK arrivals last week, while Austria has banned direct UK flights from 1 June.
By last week, the UK had recorded 3,424 cases of the new COVID 19 variant. Meanwhile England’s chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty, has said the Indian variant is “more transmittable” than the UK variant first identified in Kent, which was responsible for the UK’s deadly wave of coronavirus infections during the winter.
