All travel corridors will close from Monday, meaning everyone arriving in the UK will have to self-isolate.

The tighter border restrictions announced by Boris Johnson are aimed at protecting the progress made with the rollout of vaccines in the face of new coronavirus variants being found around the world.


Everyone will also need to have proof of a negative COVID-19 test, as was previously announced.

Mr Johnson told the Downing Street news briefing: "It's precisely because we have the hope of that vaccine and the risk of new strains coming from overseas that we must take additional steps now to stop those strains from entering the country.

"Yesterday we announced that we're banning flights from South America and Portugal and to protect us against the risk from as-yet-unidentified strains we will also temporarily close all travel corridors from 4am on Monday.

"Following conversations with the devolved administrations we will act together so this applies across the whole of the UK."

Meanwhile, in Ireland, we are still advising people from Brazil to self isolate themselves, we are still open to the world and the new strain from Brazil is supposed to be able to override the vaccine.

Todays numbers in Ireland,

Not to worry - they can all fly in to Ireland and get the boat.

All cross border roads between the ROI and the UK may be closed.
Everything about this points towards a massive military operation in action and not a virus.
