Coronavirus: The government has accused the Shocks of being a list of declared non-quarantine countries


Downing Street has accused the airline of operating a "shambolic" scheme, which eventually unveiled a list of places to travel without restraint for a fortnight after its return.


Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon and his Welsh counterpart Mark Drakeford said the government had made last-minute changes to its list of safe-travel countries after weeks of delays and economic hardship. Alert from travel companies facing.

The list, which was published on Friday, was released without a "traffic light" system, though the Transport Secretary had promised hours before the radio interview.

Despite Mr. Shop's previous claims, there is confusion over the inclusion of Greece in the list of non-quarantine countries.

Mr. Shopis said Greece would not have the facility because it had banned flights from the UK until July 15 due to the UK's high infection rate - but the government supported it unilaterally and unilaterally despite the Greek side's ban. It was given the green light.

The government's chief scientific adviser also suggested that scientific evidence did not support the 14-day restraint imposed on travelers arriving in England. Speaking at a Downing Street press conference on Friday, on June 8, Sir Patrick Valens was asked if there was any scientific justification for the blanket blockade.

Sir Patrick replied: "Our advice is clear that quarantine makes a lot of sense and can be used effectively when people come from countries with higher infection rates than those here."

"Quarantine is such a remedy right here."

Ms. Sturgeon has criticized the "sanding" of UK government policy: "Despite the danger, as it currently stands, we cannot allow ourselves to be dragged into this scenario.

"To clarify this point on changing the sands of the UK government position - the list of countries they demand yesterday for the Scottish government to sign up, and we suggest coming to an agreement are obstacles, not the same list they share with us today."

Mr Drakeford said it was "impossible" to get "correct answers" from ministers about his policy.

"Day by day, we tried to get the right answer from the UK government on how they want to make these changes. What countries do they want to expand the arrangements with, and I would say follow this impossible experience," she said.

The 14-day self-segregation policy for UK arrivals - exempted on June 8 - was introduced on June 8, but is now being deported to the listed countries.

There are 73 exceptional countries for long-distance destinations, including Australia, Barbados, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand and Vietnam, along with popular short-haul destinations such as Spain, France, Italy, Turkey, Greece, and Cyprus.

The absence of China, Portugal, Thailand, the Maldives, and the United States is noteworthy.

Labor has attacked the government's situation as a "mess". Shadow Transportation Secretary Jim McMahon said: “Labor - like families and businesses up and down the country - is keen to reduce government restraint, but it is confusing.

"At first we had restrictions that they were slow to implement. Then they said they would do air bridges. Now we have seen residents of 60 or more countries planning to stay in England without any arrangements."

"His failure to negotiate an air bridge is a sign of his failure to deal with the crisis at home," he said. They were too slow to take the lockdown, too slow to order the PPE, and too slow to defend our country. "

Liberal Democrats have called on ministers to publish a scientific basis for so-called "travel corridors."

Lib Dem Health, wellbeing and social care spokeswoman Munira Wilson have accused ministers of being "everywhere" over the blockade.

“People deserve more, and to avoid confusion, ministers must publish the scientific basis for their decisions,” she said.
