Government must publish scientific basis for air bridges

Responding to the publication of the list of countries for which quarantine will not apply for people arriving back in England, Liberal Democrat Health, Wellbeing and Social Care spokesperson Munira Wilson said: “The coronavirus crisis remains deeply worrying, particularly for the most vulnerable. While we all want to get back to normal life, we must ensure it is safe to do so.

“Where quarantine is concerned, the Government have been all over the place. Clearly, that hasn’t changed. People deserve better. To avoid yet further confusion, Ministers must publish the scientific basis for their decisions.

“Underpinning everything the Government does must be the motivation to keep people safe. Ministers can only do that by delivering a comprehensive strategy to test, trace and isolate to prevent a new surge.”
