This online news platform understands that Nigeria luckily escaped being red-listed today among the 33 countries that the UK said will face tough COVID-19 new measures on arrival to its shores.

 

The scheme, which started today, was described by the secretary of state for Health, Matt Hancock as ‘mission-critical’, reported metro.co.uk.

 

‘Passengers will only be able to enter the UK through a small number of ports that currently account for the vast majority of passenger arrivals,’ Mr Hancock told the House of Commons.

‘When they arrive they will be escorted to a designated hotel which will be closed to guests who aren’t quarantining, for 10 days, or for longer if they test positive for Covid-19 during their stay.

 

’ All passengers must book and pay for their ‘quarantine package’ online via a booking system, which will go live on Thursday, before they travel.

 

The fee will cover the hotel stay for 10 days, transport to the accommodation, and Covid-19 testing.
