London, December 21 After France announced the suspension of travel of people from the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Johnson said on the 21st that the government was communicating with France to find a solution to resume cargo transportation to and from the two countries affected by this temporary restriction.
At the epidemic press conference held on the 21st, Johnson said that he had communicated with French President Macron on the issue of the impact on the transportation of goods between Britain and France, and the British government had also launched an emergency plan. At present, France’s temporary restrictions affect only 20% of British freight to and from continental Europe, and most of the food, medicine and other goods are transported normally.
Johnson also said that the United Kingdom is taking strong measures to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, and more than half a million people have been vaccinated against the first dose of the novel coronavirus so far.
Due to the mutant novel coronavirus in Britain, the French Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement on the 20th that France will suspend all people’s travel from the UK for 48 hours from 24:00 on the 20th, including freight personnel travel related to roads, railways, aviation and waterways. Unstaffed freight from the UK and French people travelling to the UK remained normal.
According to the data released by the British government on the 21st, 33,364 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were added in the country that day, with a total of 2073,511 confirmed cases. In view of the recent acceleration of the spread of the novel coronavirus in parts of the UK, many countries have issued flight bans with the United Kingdom.
