UK cut off after discovery of mutated coronavirus strain
The United Kingdom is finding itself increasingly isolated as other countries scramble to contain a new variation on the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
the United Kingdom is finding itself increasingly isolated. Up to 40 countries are now banning arrivals from the United Kingdom in a bid to stop the spread of a new strain of coronavirus that first emerged in South East England this morning.
