Fears Croatia, Greece and Turkey could join UK quarantine list in 'days'

Croatia, Greece and Turkey are all witnessing a rapid rise in coronavirus cases, and there are fears these will be added to the UK quarantine list.

Greece has seen a significant new number of coronavirus cases, from 202 last week to 226 on Sunday.

Since June, Turkey recorded it’s highest number of cases in a day with 1,256 positive tests and 21 deaths.

Croatia is also now recording cases above the Government’s quarantine benchmark of 20 per 100,000 people in a seven-day period at 21.5.

If  a ‘second wave’ of coronavirus hits the continent, Boris Johnson has warned quarantine restrictions will be imposed on more countries.

France joined Spain on the list over the weekend, therefore Britons returning from France now have to self isolate for 14 days.

An estimated 500,000 people rushed to return home from France before the 4am Saturday deadline for quarantine that was announced just over a day before.
