Anyone arriving to England from 04:00 tomorrow morning from Andorra, Belgium and the Bahamas will need to self-isolate for two weeks. The countries are now removed from the England travel exemptions list.
Data from the Joint Biosecurity Centre and Public Health England has noted a significant change in both the level and pace of confirmed cases of coronavirus (Covid-19) in the three destinations, leading to removal from the current list of travel corridors.
Since the middle of july there has been a consistent increase in Covid-19 cases per 100,000 of the population in Belgium, with a four-fold increase in total cases over this time period.
In Andorra, new cases per week increased five-fold over the same time period, and in the Bahamas the weekly case rate peaked at 78.6 last week, up from 3.1 in mid-July.
