British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday his government would soon demand COVID-19 tests for passengers arriving from overseas to stop the spread of the virus.
The move would mean following a policy used in many other countries.
“We will be bringing in measures to ensure that we test people coming into this country and prevent the virus from being re-admitted,” Johnson told a press conference.
