Britain introduces stricter rules for travelers to the country: they must remain in solitary confinement until a negative PCR test. The announcement was made by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday. At the same time, he announced that curtains would have to be re-worn in shops and on public transport equipment.

Johnson announced the new measures at an emergency press conference. AFP reports that he made the announcement just hours after Britain confirmed that the first two cases of the corona virus variant Omigran had been registered in its territory.

All Britons and foreigners entering the UK are currently required to undergo a PCR test the day after their arrival. However, according to the new rules, they must isolate themselves until the negative result of this test, which reflects the significant rigidity of existing measures.

“I very much hope … we can cancel these measures in a timely manner … but for now, this is a responsible approach,” Johnson said, promising that the newly imposed restrictions would be reviewed three weeks before Christmas.

At the same time, he expressed hope that the British would look forward to a happier Christmas this year than last, because the country would not have another lock in the future.

The Prime Minister did not specify when the duty would come into force again, such as wearing a veil on shops and public transport.

A few hours ago, British Health Minister Sajid Javed announced that the first two cases of the newly discovered corona virus variant had been reported in the United Kingdom. The minister added that the two cases involving people from South Africa were interrelated. According to him, both are in home isolation. One case was registered in Chemsford and the other in Nottingham.
