The border with many countries was blocked, and Britain and France discussed reopening freight routes.
Reuters reported on the 22nd that the British government is cooperating with France to lift the border blockade, which has disrupted one of Europe’s most important trade routes.
Several European countries have closed their borders to the UK in recent days after the discovery of a novel coronavirus strain with high infectivity in London, leaving hundreds of truck drivers stranded in southern England.
France has closed its borders to people and trucks entering from the UK. The BBC quoted French Minister for European Affairs Clément Beaune as saying that Britain and France will announce the agreement to restart freight by Wednesday.
