Germany and Cyprus could lose the quarantine exemption if the cases increase.


In Germany, around 14,964 coronavirus cases were reported on Tuesday, the highest daily number since May.

Germany and Cyprus may lose their quarantine status this week as coronavirus cases continue to rise in both countries.

Coronavirus cases in both countries have increased rapidly in recent weeks

Germany could lose its exemption from Britain’s quarantine policy if the government announces the weekly update of its list of travel corridors at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

The figures were calculated by the PA news agency on the basis of data collected by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

This increased the seven-day rate of cases per 100,000 people in the country from 56 a week ago to 101.

“There was a very sudden increase. In the last two weeks, the infection rate has increased by almost 200%.

Paul Charles, managing director of the travel consulting company The PC Agency, said the government will “very likely” lift the quarantine exemption for people entering the country from Germany.

He said: “Your numbers on all criteria are going in the wrong direction. She is now firmly in the quarantine zone.

Germany requires visitors from the UK to undergo a 14-day quarantine unless they can prove a negative test not older than 48 hours, or they can be tested on arrival.

“Test positivity has risen to over 4%, indicating widespread transmission in the community, which the government does not like to see in its decision-making.

Cyprus could also lose its quarantine exemption due to a case number of 112, while the current case number in the UK is 233.

Jamaica’s rate of 14 means that there is “no reason” to exclude the Caribbean island from the list of travel corridors, Mr Charles claimed.

A rate of 20 cases per 100,000 people is the threshold above which the government previously considered triggering quarantine conditions.

He also said it was “a shame” that no African country was exempt from quarantine conditions, and said there was a possibility that South Africa could be placed on the list of travel corridors at a rate of 20.

But Mr. Charles believes that in response to the increase in cases around the world, a new criterion based on a rate of 100 will be applied.
