New Covid travel rules delayed by 3 days despite fears over Brazil variant

Strict new Covid travel rules on people coming into England have been delayed for three days despite mounting fears over the virus.

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

But late last night, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the requirement would only kick in at 4am on Monday. He bizarrely announced the delay on Twitter with no formal government press release and it was unclear why it had happened.
