Restrições de viagens da Grã-Bretanha

By Duncan Mil

December 21, 2020 - Países de todo o mundo impuseram restrições a viagens do RUdevido a receios de uma nova estirpe supervirulenta do coronavírus.

Britain’s port of Dover closed its ferry terminal for outbound traffic until further notice after the discovery of a new variant of the coronavirus prompted a wave of countries to ban travel from the UK.

More than 80% of the drivers of the 2.1 million trucks that go through Dover every year are foreign nationals, the vast bulk of them from the European Union.

France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium, Israel and Canada were among those that shut off travel ties after Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned of a highly infectious new strain of the virus.

Johnson said the fast-moving new variant of the virus is 70% more transmissible than existing strains, though he said there was no evidence that it was more lethal or caused a more severe illness.
