UK scrapping quarantine for many visitors, but not from US

LONDON (AP) – The British government said yesterday it is scrapping a 14-day quarantine rule for arrivals from about 60 countries deemed “lower risk” for the coronavirus, including France, Spain, Germany and Italy – but not the United States (US), the world’s worst-hit country from COVID-19. The change takes effect on July 10, just over a month after the United Kingdom (UK) began requiring international arrivals to self-isolate for two weeks. The full list of exempted countries was announced late yesterday. More details in Weekend’s Borneo Bulletin
