Gov. UK News Live: Matt Hancock announces travel rules for Red List countries

Hancock says you could face up to 10 years in prison if you cover up a trip to the ‘red zone’ country

Matt Hancock has confirmed that passengers arriving in the UK and staying in hotels for the Covit-19 isolation will be charged $ 1,750 for accommodation.

According to the health secretary, violators could face fines of up to $ 10,000 and up to 10 years in prison.

In a statement to Commons MPs on Tuesday, Mr Hancock said 16 hotels were involved in the isolation project and would pick up passengers from Monday.

The plan was released last week that UK nationals returning from 33 “red list” countries should be isolated in closely monitored government-appointed hotels where they can take two checks.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has decided that the spread from a Chinese laboratory leak is “highly unlikely” and no further work is needed to investigate this theory.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says it has discovered new information about the origin of the virus SARS-COV-2, which causes Govt-19, but has not dramatically altered the image of the eruption in Wuhan.

Experts believe the virus could have spread to other regions before it was identified in central China by the end of 2019.

EU citizens who left the UK due to Govt lost their right to live in the UK

Thousands of EU citizens temporarily fleeing the UK due to the corona virus infection are set to lose their long-term right to stay in the UK under Home Office rules.

4.3 million EU citizens have been granted immigration status since the UK voted in, but 1.5 million of them have been granted a temporary right to stay, which could be lost if anyone leaves the UK for more than six months without a good reason. .

Who works with me Sam Lovett Reports from a Public Health UK conference today:

A total of 170 cases related to the South African corona virus variant have been identified in the UK, health officials said.

These 18 infections were not linked to travel to South Africa, indicating the spread of the community-based virus, according to the Public Health UK.

The PHE said that the E484K mutation, which helps the virus to avoid certain parts of the body’s immune response, continues to be cultivated in the British variant. E484K features in the genetic preparation of South African and Brazilian varieties, and is thought to reduce the effectiveness of the Govit-19 vaccine in providing protection against mild and moderate diseases.

Common Asthma Medication Reductions to Admit to the Hospital for Govt-19 Patients – Study

If the drug is given within seven days of the onset of symptoms, a common asthma treatment will reduce the need to hospitalize Covid-19 patients, according to an Oxford University study.

Butazonide, sold by AstraZeneca under the name Pulmicard, is used to treat smoker’s lungs.

The researchers said that when the medication was given in inhaled form, it reduced the time required for patients to recover from the corona virus. The findings suggested Inhaled butonson reduced the risk of emergency treatment or hospital admission by 90 percent.

The study was conducted over 28 days and involved 146 participants.

Mona Papadel, a professor at the University of Naples Medical School who led the experiment, said: “There have been significant improvements in the number of hospitalized Covid-19 patients, but there is a need for early treatment, emergency treatment and hospitalization, especially with limited access to hospital care for billions of people worldwide.

“Vaccination programs are very exciting, but we know that it will take some time to reach everyone around the world.

Mark Drakford calls for ‘strong security’ on the UK border

The Welsh Prime Minister has called on the UK government to implement a “strong security plan” at the border to prevent the importation of new strains of the corona virus, which the current trip calls a “minimum” of the “red list”.

After 13 cases were identified there, Mark Drakford told the Welsh Parliament that “everything is being done” to prevent further spread of South African diversity in Wales.

He said: “What we need to see is a strong security at our borders.

“All the gains made by the UK government in suppressing the red list virus and vaccinating our people are the minimum of what needs to be done to ensure that people coming to the UK from other parts are not at risk. And new varieties may already be in the decoction.”

He told the Senate that work was ongoing to establish the effectiveness of the Oxford / Astrogeneca vaccine against the South African variant.

“But much more can be done to mitigate the risk of new species coming into the UK,” he said.
