British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will propose to US President Joe Biden to create a tourist corridor between the countries for vaccinated citizens, who will not need to undergo mandatory quarantine upon arrival. This was reported by The Times on Wednesday.
According to the plan, which was discussed at the government level, it is assumed that vaccinated Americans will be able to freely come to the United Kingdom, even if the epidemic situation in the United States is unfavorable. In London, they expect similar conditions for the British.
Johnson and Biden will discuss the proposal at the G7 summit, which will be held from June 11 to 13 in the resort town of Carbis Bay on the Atlantic coast of the Cornwall Peninsula, the newspaper writes. The campaign to vaccinate the population began in the UK on December 8 last year after the approval of the use of the Pfizer vaccine. In January, the country began to give injections with the drug AstraZeneca, from mid-April they started using the drug Moderna, and at the end of May, a single-component vaccine from Janssen was approved. To date, the first dose of the vaccine in the kingdom has already received more than 38.6 million people (over 58% of the population), and both doses – 24 million patients (36% of all residents).
