Britain to impose quarantine on tourists returning from Spain

Britain has decided to impose a two- week quarantine period on citizens returning from Spain, where there has recently been an increase in coronavirus cases. 

Despite the peak of covid-19 infections, especially in Catalonia, the local Madrid government ensures that the situation is "under control”.

"The Spanish government believes that the situation is under control, the outbreaks have been located and have been isolated," the Spanish Foreign Ministry told the AFP - Agence France-Presse.

"Spain is a safe country," added the Ministry, which however says it "respects" the decisions of some countries, such as the United Kingdom, which have imposed quarantine for those returning from Spain.

In particular, the Spanish Government is trying to persuade the UK to exclude the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands from quarantine measures, as London has not yet issued the advice to avoid non-essential travel - from these places.
