The prime minister announced a dramatic tightening of the UK’s borders, with all international arrivals to be forced to quarantine as well as demonstrate they have had a negative Covid test. The new restrictions will come into force at 4am on 18 January. The closure of travel corridors was to protect the UK from the risk of 'vaccine-busting' Covid variants coming into the country, Johnson added.
