The UK government has confirmed 36 new fatalities and more than 900 new coronavirus cases in recent hours, to a total of 43,550 deaths and more than 311,000 cases.
In particular, the 901 cases in recent hours – slightly higher than the 890 found on Saturday – have brought the total number of people infected with the disease to 311,151 since the onset of the crisis in the UK, according to the balance this Sunday by the Ministry of Health and Social Care on your Twitter account.
This balance will be released during a weekend during which the UK government has announced that it will lift the quarantine for travelers returning from certain countries of the European Union, including Spain, from July 6.
For example, tourists returning from countries on a list drawn up by the British government will not be required to comply with the hitherto relevant 14-day quarantine on their return, ministerial sources have told the BBC.
The countries on the list are Spain, France, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, Belgium, Turkey, Germany and Norway, but not Portugal or Sweden, given recent peaks in cases.
The full list of these new “air corridors” with the United Kingdom will be released in the middle of next week, according to sources from the British government consulted by the BBC.
