Ministers are still hammering out the details of plans for ‘quarantine hotels’ for travellers arriving in the UK today amid warnings that they would bankrupt the UK’s travel industry and ruin the summer plans of millions of Britons.

British holidaymakers have cancelled their 2021 summer breaks abroad and European beaches are empty today ahead of an expected decision tonight to introduce an Australian-style system that would see them locked up on their return.   

Mr Johnson is expected to sign off on plans this evening to divert travellers entering the UK from high-risk Covid countries into hotels to stop new mutant strains of coronavirus like the ones from Brazil and South Africa entering the UK.

But a decision on whether to expand the plan to those coming from other countries would be delayed.

The PM wants to force travellers entering the UK into quarantine hotels for 10 days where guests will change the sheets, empty the bins and be fed airline-style food three times a day while paying £1,500 for the privilege. 

But there are grave concerns that the scheme will have no fixed end date – causing havoc for businesses – and may take weeks to set up.

Amid fury from the industry and 수원셔츠룸 consumers, a government source told MailOnline the decisions on the plan will ‘go down to the wire’, adding: ‘The meeting will be where the decision is taken. It’s not just rubber stamping.’ 

They also cautioned that some of those coming in might not be able to pay for their own hotel stay, and there might need to be means-tested support. 

‘There’s a problem with Brits with not a lot of money …

you can see it coming like a slow motion steamroller.’

Boris Johnson is due to hold a Downing Street press conference tonight at 6pm ahead of the meeting of the Covid-O committee that will make the decision. 

It came as Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said it was ‘too early’ to book a summer holiday abroad – but some anxious Britons took to social media to admit the warning came too late, with some having bought flights for as early as the half-term holidays in mid-February. 

Paul Charles, chief executive of travel company The PC Agency, said: ‘This is destroying confidence among holidaymakers.

People are not booking summer holidays because they don’t believe there is an end game which will see these blanket measures removed. 

‘This is a sure-fire way of destroying Britain’s aviation and travel industries. The Government needs to signal that they will withdraw the hotel quarantine rules by the end of March and return to a system of quarantining arrivals from high-risk areas only.’

As thousands more holidays were cancelled, it also emerged today:

  • Furious Tories today warned that the EU will ‘poison’ relations for ‘a generation’ if it follows through on extraordinary threats to block Pfizer vaccines going to the UK – as ministers insisted they are ‘confident’ supplies will be maintained. 
  • Scientists erupt with fury at ‘completely incorrect’ German claim that Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid vaccine is only 8% effective in the over-65s;
  • Boris Johnson faces deafening calls to set out exactly how and when he is going to reopen schools;

The UK yesterday recorded another 30,004 Covid cases, down almost a quarter on last Sunday, and a further 610 deaths 

But with some 97,939 deaths now recorded, Britain is set to hit the grim milestone of 100,000 lives lost since the start of the pandemic.

It will be the fifth country to do so after the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico.
