The Netherlands has banned passenger flights from the UK. According to Reuters news agency, the Dutch government said in a statement on Sunday that due to the new wave of Corona in Britain, passenger flights from there are being banned until January 1. On the other hand, the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday announced strict restrictions to prevent the corona virus before the arrival of Christmas.
According to the French news agency AFP, the government had earlier called for easing the restrictions on Christmas. The UK has seen a sharp rise in cases of the new corona virus over the past two weeks.
Scientists say the rate of virus transmission has now risen by 70 percent, while Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the government must take immediate action. Addressing the news conference, the Prime Minister said, “I am telling you with a heavy heart that we will no longer be able to celebrate Christmas the way we had planned before.”
I say in good faith that I have no other alternative. ” According to AFP, one-third of the population in the capital, London, and the south-east of England, which was in Tier Three at the time, will now be subject to Tier Four restrictions. Boris Johnson said non-essential items, gym and hairdresser shops will remain closed in the Tier Four area, but people will be able to go out to work, exercise and education or childcare.
