The opening of Great Britain
The British government is easing the restrictions imposed to contain the Covid-19 pandemic and allow tourists to spend their holidays in the United Kingdom. The government is expected to lift the 14-day quarantine requirement that has so far forced those returning from abroad to isolation. The quarantine will be replaced with a traffic light system. Countries will be marked with green, amber and red colors based on the prevalence of the virus. Only travelers returning to the UK from red areas or places with a high Covid-19 level will be required to be isolated. The full list of countries is expected to be released next week, but Spain, Greece and France are likely to receive the green light.
The nightmare of New Delhi
The health system of the Indian federated territory of Delhi has been severely tested for the speed of spread of the coronavirus, admitted Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Delhi, which includes the federal capital, New Delhi, is the most affected area in India, with about 73,000 recorded cases of Covid-19 and at least 2,500 deaths. The increase in infections in the first week of June led to a shortage of hospital beds and the increase in victims. In the metropolitan area of Delhi, with 20 million people, infections have increased much faster than in the rest of the country, with about a third of infections reported only in the past week.
