#AceHealthReport – June.27: A top doctor has warned air bridge deals could reverse the work that’s been done to drive Coronavirus down and pleaded with the UK to ‘not be careless’………………….Dr David Nabarro, a #Covid19 special envoy for the World Health Organisation (WHO), said the government should not be ‘pushed’ into allowing quarantine-free travel, which raises the risk of a second spike of infections:
#Coronavirus Report: #WHO Dr WARNING after reports of Quarantine measures maybe lifted next week as Boris Johnson planning ‘ Air Bridges ‘ for countries with ‘ low-risk-infection-rates under ‘ traffic-light-system MetroUK.Com/
Summer holidays for Brits have been given the green light after ministers confirmed the requirement to self-isolate will be scrapped for a number of popular destinations, including France, Greece and Spain. Boris Johnson is expected to officially make the announcement next week, with international travel allowed to resume to some countries from July.04:
Warning the UK to be careful, Dr Nabarro told the BBC’s Today programme: ‘We’re right at this delicate phase where we can actually push this virus right down, suppress it, and get on with life and have a good life: ‘But if we are just a little bit careless and we get one of these major what we call ‘spreader events’ where a lot of people get ill and then suddenly our health services get overwhelmed again, in the coming months or two we’re going to look at each other and feel really frustrated: ‘So please when it comes to restarting international travel be careful: ‘Make sure that these air bridge are between places with just about the same risk profile. Then it makes sense………..‘But don’t be pushed into establishing air bridges that might then raise the risk of one or other country having a much higher level of disease………‘We would be very cross in two or three months’ time with ourselves if we don’t get this right.’
The Foreign Office still advise against all but essential international travel, and anyone returning to the country must still self-isolate for 4 days: The quarantine measures have been heavily criticised since they were brought in this month, with many questioning why it wasn’t in place at the peak of the outbreak.
They are expected to be replaced with a a traffic light system that will place countries into green, amber and red categories based on the prevalence of coronavirus within their borders: Only passengers arriving into the UK from nations in the red category, where the spread of coronavirus is deemed to be high, will be told to self-isolate for two weeks…………………Travellers will, however, still have to hand over the address they plan to reside at on their return, no matter which country they are coming back from.
A full list of the low-risk countries in the green and amber categories, where people will be able to enter the UK from without being required to self-isolate, is due to be published next week……
