Following a small rise in cases, Switzerland could be placed on the UK’s quarantine list, as the UK government have a seven-day rate of 20 coronavirus cases per 100,000 population threshold.

The government threshold stands at 20 cases per 100,000 population, and Switzerland have now crept above this to 20.7 in seven days.

There are also fears that Greece which is a popular holiday hotspot for Brits could be next on the UK quarantine list as cases have surged by 72.3% in the last week.

Due to a spike in coronavirus infections, the Greek authorities have imposed local restrictions in Mykonos, Halkidiki, Paros and Antiparos.

The British Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) most recent advice says, “The Greek authorities are likely to impose local coronavirus-related restrictions in certain areas, if they perceive a heightened case-rate or other valid reason, in relation to that area.

“You should monitor the situation regularly via media and other information sources, including your accommodation or travel provider.”

Chancellor Rishi Sunak warned that the government “won’t hesitate” to impose travel restrictions, he advises all holidaymakers to keep up to date on the FCO travel advice, which can change at any moment.
