UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced changes to the rules during a visit to the UK on Wednesday. Those who have been fully vaccinated should be tested only upon arrival. The AFP agency and the BBC reported.

From Friday, from 4.00 am local time (5.00 CET), the UK will cancel the duty to take the exam before arriving at their border.

From Sunday, passengers will no longer have to be isolated upon arrival, the BBC writes, ending with a negative PCR test. Instead, they should be subjected to an antigen test within two days.

According to Johnson, the current move “encourages many to travel because they fear they will get stuck overseas and face significant ups and downs.”

British Transport Minister Grand Shops announced on Twitter that an antigen test would be required once the fully vaccinated passenger arrived. According to him, the government “supports” the safe resumption of international tourism by facilitating pilot operations.

During his address to the British Parliament, the Prime Minister recalled the sharp rise in the number of patients suffering from gout in hospitals across the country.

“We have been experiencing a rapid increase in (epidemic) Govt cases since the beginning,” he said, adding that more than 218,000 new cases were reported in the UK on Tuesday.

“In response to these figures, the government has agreed that we must adhere to Plan B for a period of three weeks,” he said.

According to the Prime Minister, those in the UK must continue to work from home and, if possible, pass a test before heading out to public places and most public places where airways are closed and dangerous.

The government will re-evaluate the measures by the end of this three-week period.
