ALL lorries, flights and ships from Denmark have been banned from entering the UK after a mutant coronavirus outbreak which will see millions of mink culled.
The Government had already barred all travellers from the Nordic country in the first travel ban implemented by Britain during the pandemic as a result of the development, dubbed a ‘virologist’s worst nightmare’.
It comes as worldwide coronavirus infections soared past 50 million on Sunday, according to a Reuters tally.
Meanwhile, doctors could hand out Covid vaccines on Christmas and Boxing Day under plans to protect millions of Brits quickly.
Family doctors are preparing to be able to offer the jab seven days a week between 8am and 8pm – while every major city will also get a dedicated mass Covid vaccination centre to speed up the roll-out.
