Netherlands bans flights from UK over new coronavirus mutation
The new mutation has emerged in the South-east of England, leading yesterday to the UK government deciding not to relax the tight rules on gatherings it had intended to make more supple over Christmas.
Now one case has been detected in the Netherlands, leading to the flight ban. The person was infected at the beginning of December, and an investigation is now under way into how and where the infection took place, and how many people the person may have come into contact with since. ■
