  • Travellers arriving in Britain will face 14 days in quarantine from next month to prevent a second coronavirus outbreak, the government announced on Friday, warning that anyone breaking the rules faced a fine or prosecution.
  • The new rules will apply to all international arrivals except Ireland from June 8 and come after weeks of calls for tougher restrictions to curb the spread of Covid-19.
  • Britain is currently piloting a contact tracing smartphone app to better identify cases and the spread of the virus nationally.
