Travellers arriving from Britain will now have to submit a negative coronavirus test result before boarding a plane to the city, and will then have to be quarantined for 14 days in a hotel, instead of at home. Before boarding, they will also need to submit confirmation of their hotel reservation for the duration of the quarantine.
There are already 10 countries on the list: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Africa, and the United States. ■
