Health Minister Matt Hancock said India was being included in the red list. All British and Irish nationals will be barred from entering the UK except the countries listed.

After arriving from these countries, British and Irish citizens will be quarantined for 10 days in government-approved hotels at their own expense. According to the health minister, the ban will take effect from Friday.
