The movement of lorries between France and Britain will begin soon, as there is talk of reopening Britain’s borders with the port of Dover. Earlier on Sunday, France said it would stop all people arriving from Britain for 48 hours from Sunday night, including freight carriers, whether by road, air, sea or rail.
Significantly, at least 10,000 lorries travel through Dover a day, accounting for 20 per cent of all goods brought and sold in the UK. There were fears that the French border closure would lead to a shortage of fresh food and the Corona vaccine. At the same time, the French government issued a statement on Monday, saying that the movement between the two countries will begin again in “a few hours”.
France also decided to close its borders to Britain after the Corona’s new strain halted the movement of aircraft from Germany, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, Bulgaria, the Irish Republic, Turkey and Canada to Britain.
In the UK, a strict Class 4 lockdown has been implemented and all unnecessary travel and events are banned. Other countries and regions that have banned travel to the UK include Hong Kong, Israel, Iran, Croatia, Argentina, Morocco, Chile and Kuwait.
At the same time, India has banned flights to Britain from December 22-31. This information was given by the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Monday. Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that we are temporarily banning all flights to and from the UK. All passengers coming from Britain to India will be required to undergo RT-PCR test and stay in the seven-day quarantine.
Explain that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will preside over the meeting of the government’s crisis committee, Cobra, in view of the measures of other nations. Johnson said on Saturday that Corona’s new strain is spreading rapidly. He asserted that there is no evidence that it is more fatal or will cause more serious illness or that vaccines will be less effective against it.
