COVID-19: Denmark off UK travel list as country culls millions of mink over new coronavirus strain


Denmark has been added to the growing list of countries off the UK’s safe travel list after an outbreak of a mutated strain of coronavirus was discovered in the country’s large population of minks.

From 4am Friday morning passengers arriving in the UK from Denmark will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.

Transport secretary Grant Shapps said in a statement the measures were put in place as a “precautionary measure” on the recommendation of Chief Medical officer Chris Witty after evidence of a mutated strain of coronavirus was found circulating in Denmark’s population of minks.

Authorities in the country are planning to cull its entire population, some 17 million minks, amid fears the mutation could render potential vaccines ineffective.
