Netherlands – UK: flights close due to new strain of coronavirus

From 20.12.2020 to 01.01.2021 the Netherlands will close air traffic with the UK due to the discovery of a new type of COVID-19 in the latter.

This decision was taken by the cabinet minister of the Netherlands as a precautionary measure, since a pathogenic mutation of the coronavirus is circulating in Britain. Scientists claim that the new strain is lighter and spreads much faster. At the same time, it is much more difficult to identify it.

As for another type of transport and communication between states, the situation has not yet been clarified.

We remind you that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Netherlands has introduced a general quarantine until mid-January 2021. In the UK, strict restrictions came into force on 12/20/2020.
