Portugal is the only European nation on UK’s ‘red list’ restricting entry

Portugal is on a list of 33 countries — and the only European nation — that the UK government has put on its “red list” last week. The list includes other coronavirus hotbeds, including Brazil and South Africa. 

“If you have been in or through any of the countries listed below in the previous 10 days, you will be refused entry to the UK,” the UK’s Department of Transport says.

Exceptions are made for British and Irish citizens and legal residents, but even they must stay in a government-approved hotel for a 10-day quarantine. And that will cost close to $2,500 for a single adult, according to the New York Times

Here’s the full list (see the UK government’s website for updates).
