All passengers entering UK to require repeated COVID tests - ITV reporter

Outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), in London

LONDON (Reuters) - Anyone entering the United Kingdom from Tuesday will need to be tested for COVID-19 on the second and eighth days after their arrival, an ITV reporter said, without citing sources.

"Understand the government will announce tomorrow that ALL passengers arriving in UK will have to be tested for COVID on days 2 and 8 after they arrive," ITV reporter Paul Brand said on Twitter.

"That's not just those arriving from red zone countries heading into hotel quarantine, but those isolating at home."
