These destinations could lose safe travel corridor links to UK in coming days

More countries could be added to the UK quarantine list when it is updated this week.

There will still be some options for a late getaway, but it is likely that more destinations will be added to the nations summary where passengers returning to the UK are isolated for 14 days.

Countries at risk include Sweden, whose infection rate rose more than 50 percent after seven days last week, and Poland, which at 18.61 is close to the crisis of 20 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

Italy, Greece and Turkey are also approaching the key number and in some cases have surpassed it.

Sweden currently remains on the UK’s safe travel list despite a sharp surge in cases over the past week.

Latest figures show a rate of 26.38 per 100,000, but most of these new cases are believed to be concentrated in the capital, Stockholm.

Poland is approaching the red danger zone of the UK traffic light system. The number of cases is currently 18.61 per 100,000 and is increasing, so it is possible the country will soon lose its safe travel status.

Tourists from the UK can still travel to Italy (including Vatican City and San Marino), but infections are on the rise.

The current infection rate is 18.7, but there has been a spike in cases and new local restrictions have been put in place, including an instruction that face coverings are now mandatory – even outdoors.

The demand for holidays in Turkey has increased significantly as it is one of the new sun destinations that is still under quarantine for UK vacationers. It is in the green safe zone for travel with an infection rate of 14.15.

However, Turkey has registered 23,335 cases of Covid-19 in the past two weeks, according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.

The Turkish government has imposed curfews that are limited in time or aimed at certain age groups. These can be imposed at short notice.
