|Red List To Be Scrapped After Just A Fortnight And Replaced With Testing For The by obi4eze(m): 12:00pm On Dec 13, 2021|
Controversial red list could be scrapped again just weeks after it was introduced
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps is said to advocate testing for fully vaccinated
Return of the red list met with fury from officials in affected African countries
Travellers in quarantine complained of six-hour journeys to hotel and 'grim' food
The travel red list is set to be scrapped as soon as this week.
The emergence of Omicron forced thousands of travellers into hotel quarantine at a cost of £2,285 per person for ten days.
But just a fortnight after the list was introduced, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps is said to have convinced colleagues it should be replaced with testing for the fully vaccinated.
The move is expected to be approved this week, the Mail on Sunday reported.
Data suggests that with Omicron spreading rapidly worldwide, there will be limited differences in countries' infection rates.
The return of the red list was met with fury from officials in affected African countries, while travellers complained of six-hour journeys to their hotel and 'grim' food.
At Wednesday's Covid briefing, Boris Johnson promised to re-examine the policy amid claims it was unfair and ineffective.
