The United Kingdom says Travelers who lie about their visit to mutant coronavirus hotspots may face up to ten years in prison, under a brutal crackdown unveiled by Matt Hancock today.
The Health Secretary Matt Hancock disclosed this Tuesday under a brutal crackdown warning that protecting the UK from variant strains that can potentially evade vaccines is 'mission critical'.
He said the country among other incredibly harsh measures, is creating a new criminal offence of hiding from the authorities that a person has visited one of the countries on the UK's 'red list'.
The draconian step came as he confirmed that from next week Monday all arrivals will have to take three coronavirus tests – one pre-departure and two during their isolation period.
Those who fail to get the checks could be hit with up to five thousand pounds in fines.
