London. British will not be allowed to go abroad until mid-May. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in London on Monday that he hoped the international tour would be possible again from May 17. However, considering the high number of epidemics in other countries, a decision can be made very quickly. The current ban on international travel will therefore remain in effect until further notice.
A traffic light system is to be introduced later and, accordingly, different rigorous testing and isolation rules will apply when returning depending on the infection situation in the travel space. Which countries are classified as red, yellow or green should be announced shortly before the introduction of when the travel ban will actually be lifted.
For Germans who want to go on vacation on the island, there must be compulsory isolation unless Germany is classified as a green country.
Strict ban: Brits are not currently allowed to travel
Although the epidemic situation in Great Britain is now much better than in Germany, with a few exceptions, such as work, funerals or medical treatment, the British have been banned from leaving their country for months. Mallorca holidays are excluded, as thousands of Germans do for Easter.
Illegal attempts to leave the country are punishable by a fine of up to $ 5,000 (equivalent to about 5,900 euros). The British government continues to rely on relatively harsh corona measures and slow, gradual easing so as not to jeopardize the success of its advanced vaccination campaign.
Seven-day events 44 cases per 100,000 people a week. In Germany, the value was nearly 130 on Monday.
On Monday, Johnson confirmed the next relief people in the UK can look forward to from April 12: “On Monday the 12th, I will go to a pub and bring a beer to my lips carefully but unchanged.”
Starting next week, pubs will be able to reopen their beer gardens and restaurants in their outdoor areas. Locks can also be applied to zoos, gyms, hairdressers and non-essential stores. Other British parts of the country set their own corona rules, but choose a similar route.
At the same time, test runs for vaccination certificates based on the Israeli model are set to begin in the coming weeks at selected events – both football matches and cultural events. The British government wants to introduce this in the coming months.
As an alternative to the corona vaccine, negative test evidence should also be possible. However, opposition politicians and sections of Johnson’s own Conservative Tory faction have already voiced strong criticism and warned against exclusion and secession.
