Travelers from Belgium, Andorra, and the Bahamas arriving in England must self-isolate for two weeks as the countries are added to the quarantine list of the UK. Also, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) updated its travel advice to advise against all but the essential travel to the three destinations.
The data from the Joint Biosecurity Centre and Public Health England resulted in changes in the list of travel corridors
The data from the Joint Biosecurity Centre and Public Health England recorded changes in the level and pace of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the three destinations, resulting in the removal of these destinations from the list of travel corridors by ministers. In the Bahamas, the weekly case rate increased to 78.6 last week from 3.1 in mid-July, while in Andorra, new cases per week have increased with five-fold over time. Since the middle of July, there has been a continuous increase in Covid-19 cases per 100,000 of the population in Belgium, with a four-fold increase in total cases over this time.
Following the decrease in confirmed cases of Covid-19, Brunei and Malaysia have been added to the travel corridor list. These two destinations are exempt from the global advisory against non-essential travel. Also, travelers from the two destinations no longer have to self-isolate upon arrival in England.
