UK puts Croatia and Greece on quarantine list
Croatia and Greece are still put on Quarantine restriction list by United Kingdom of Great Britain. This decision was taken after huge surge in COVID-19 positive cases in the respective countries.
Both countries recorded their second highest number of new infections on Tuesday – 199 in Croatia and 250 in Greece – leading to a rise up to 27 and 14, respectively, in their cumulative seven-day average, the figure used by Downing Street to assess the safety of ‘travel corridors’.
The Finnish minister of transport and communications Timo Harakka said, “Our strong message is that travelling to risky countries should be avoided. Returning to Finland from them will lead to quarantine and trouble.”
