In the near future, a “green list” of countries will be announced where the British will be able to rest without the restrictions associated with the pandemic. It looks like the company of Greece outside of it will be Italy, Spain and France, according to the British tabloid The Sun.
Great Britain does not intend to include Greece in the “green list”, and placement in orange means a mandatory 10-day quarantine. Malta, Gibraltar, Portugal, Iceland and Israel will be on the priority list instead of Greece and Spain, beloved by the British. The classification of states is based on criteria such as the presence of coronavirus mutations, the percentage of the vaccinated population, and the rate at which the infection spreads.
The UK places all countries in the expected list by color-coded categories. Those included in the “green list” are freed from quarantine upon returning from vacation or arriving as a tourist, and must only have a negative test before returning and do a PCR test two days after arrival.
Orange means 10 days of quarantine, negative test before return, PCR test two and eight days after arrival. For the red list, measures are being tightened – in addition to tests, it will be necessary to spend 10 days in quarantine at the hotel, with the cost of living on their own (approximately £ 1,750), which is fraught with significant financial costs.
The official announcement by the authorities is expected by Friday.
