A government minister has said the UK has acted "decisively" on covid strains - despite a recent delay in banning travel from Brazil.

The UK government was expected to ban travel from much of South America today - but has bizarrely pushed back a long-awaited requirement to get a negative Covid test by three more days.

Anyone arriving in England was going to have to get a coronavirus test, and ensure the result is negative, from 4am tomorrow.
