Denmark is expected to be added to the quarantine list today as demand soars for holidays in Turkey, one of the few remaining “Covid-safe” countries for British tourists.
Ministers are due to announce the latest round of travel restrictions this afternoon, with Denmark almost certain to be placed on the “red” list of countries deemed a risk to British holidaymakers.
The latest figures show that Covid-19 infections in Denmark have risen to 30.5 per 100,000 people in seven days; the government’s usual threshold for quarantine is 20. This would put Denmark with countries such as Spain, France, Portugal, Croatia, Malta and Switzerland on the list of “no-go” destinations.
Under the rules, people arriving in Britain from these countries must isolate for two weeks.
