The United Kingdom and France have drawn up a plan to resume freight traffic between the two countries. The plan should come into effect on Wednesday.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French president Emmanuel Macron have agreed to this after telephone talks.
Since it has been known that a new mutated variety of the coronavirus has emerged in the United Kingdom, which is even more contagious, freight traffic around the Channel Tunnel has stopped. The agreed measures for reopening the border will be in force on Wednesday, reports BBC News.
It is not yet clear exactly how much freight traffic can cross the border from Wednesday onwards and what the conditions are.
It is said that any driver who wants to cross the border should be able to present a recent negative COVID test. In order to achieve this, rapid test sites would be set up in Dover.
