Pre-departure Covid testing’s going to be brought back for anyone arriving into England from China.
It’s a U-turn from the British government, which said earlier this week that it had “no plans” to impose screening.
It follows a sure of Covid in China, prompting places like America, India and Italy to bring in restrictions.
Travel expert Simon Calder says British ministers are very wary about the new rules:
“The government is very wary about starting to reimpose the mechanisms of COVID travel restrictions, which caused such immense damage, not just to the travel industry and the people who work in it, but also to people who, very simply, wanted to make the most of getting around”.
