Europe seeing 'signs of second wave', warns Boris Johnson

July 29, 2020

Boris Johnson has defended the Government's decision to impose quarantine restrictions on Spain, saying there are signs of a second wave of coronavirus in Europe.

Speaking as he unveils further components to the Government's obesity campaign, the Prime Minister said it would be up to individuals to decide whether they wanted to take the risk of going abroad in the present circumstances.


But he warned: "Let's be absolutely clear about what's happening in Europe, amongst some of our European friends, I'm afraid you are starting to see in some places the signs of a second wave of the pandemic."


Mr Johnson also appeared to confirm the Telegraph's exclusive story this morning, revealing plans are being readied to cut the quarantine period from 14 days to just 10.  


Asked about it today, he said: "We are always looking at ways in which we can mitigate the impact of the quarantine, try to help people, try to make sure that the science is working to help travellers and holidaymakers."
