The United Kingdom intends to place France on its “red list” due to the risks posed by the new strains of the emerging coronavirus (Covid-19), as travelers from the countries on this list cannot enter the territory of the United Kingdom unless they are British or Irish citizens or have residency.
France’s “France TV Info” channel reported today, Thursday, that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had warned of the problems that trade between the two countries might encounter.
Johnson stated that a balance must be struck between the need to protect public health and citizens and the great disruption that may occur in the decline of goods in the markets, including medicine, indicating that the government will take the decision, no matter how difficult it is, and these measures may be needed very soon. .
He explained that placing France on the “Red List” was “something that we must consider” due to concerns about the effectiveness of vaccines against new strains … adding that there is a balance that must be achieved and what we do not know is the exact state of effectiveness of vaccines against new mutations, and the state must balance that with turmoil The very dangerous implication of reducing the channels of commerce.
