Cyprus faces isolation, Jamaica can gain travel corridor

Cyprus faces isolation, Jamaica can gain travel corridor

BAs the country is set to lose its travel corridor in the Grand Shops renovation this afternoon, it could be disappointing for promising holiday makers to visit Cyprus this half season. But just like the holidays in the Jamaican canaries may come back on the ‘green list’.

In recent weeks, the number of Covit-19 cases on the Mediterranean island has increased. Yesterday, 127 cases were reported in the country, up from 51 last week and 21 the previous week.

That brings the number of cases per 100,000 in seven days to 59.6 – more than the threshold of 20, after which an isolation is considered by the UK government. In Germany, the rate is 54.5 per 100,000, and in Sweden 56.2.

However, Jamaica may be on a travel trail because its cases drop to 15.8 per 100,000. As of August 31, the number of daily cases in the Caribbean had risen to 244. Now they are 71. The hope that travel corridors could be provided for the Canaries also persists; The UK set a precedent by announcing regional air bridges with the Portuguese islands of Madeira and the Azores in August.

Grand Shops is set to make an announcement at 5pm on England’s travel red list. In recent weeks, popular holiday destinations including Italy, mainland Portugal and Turkey have lost their travel corridors, meaning Britons returning to the UK will have to go for a 14-day isolation.
