The British government intends to relax the quarantine rules before the coming holidays in order to allow travel to the family and friends at home and abroad. The Secretary of Transport Grant Shapps will announce the new rules soon.
British people who want to travel on the holidays and then return home do not have to spend 14 days, as is currently the case, but only five days in quarantine if they have been tested negative on the coronavirus within five days of their return home.
The new rules are due to enter into force on 15 or 16 December.
In addition, the government intends to approve the vaccine developed by Pfizer pharmaceutical company on 1 December, according to the newspaper. Administration of the product against the coronavirus is expected to start soon afterwards.
Spain, Germany and the United States also hope to start approving and administering the first coronav vaccines as early as December.
