Four countries set to be added to red list as Covid cases skyrocket
Four more countries are expected to be added to the red list due to high infection rates and fears over Covid variants.
Bahrain, Kuwait, Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago could be added to the red list.
That’s according to a travel analyst, who made the prediction as cases in the four countries continue to rise.
The Maldives currently has the highest number of cases per 100,000 population and is on the Red List.
But Bahrain, which is currently an amber country, has the second highest rate.
Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago, meanwhile, have higher rates than Colombia, Chile, and Suriname, as well as Brazil, all of which are red nations.
Seychelles, Uruguay, and Argentina are all red counties and have rates similar to Bahrain and Costa Rica.
Kuwait has a higher rate than Cape Verde, Nepal, and Bolivia, all of which are red nations.
The UK’s official green list went into effect on May 17 and will be revised this week, according to reports.
Grant Shapps, Secretary of Transportation, has hinted that vacation islands may be treated differently from mainland when the review takes place in early June.
The countries on the red list are:
Democratic Republic of Congo
United Arab Emirates
