Mr Cornish claimed “tens of thousands of jobs” are at risk due to the UK Government’s reluctance to place “low risk destinations” with lower case rates than the UK, along with countries like the USGermany and Italy, on the green list. The UK Government reclassified Portugal as an ‘amber’ country and added AfghanistanBahrainCosta RicaEgyptSri LankaSudan, and Trinidad and Tobago to the red list on 03-Jun-2021. [more – original PR]
