More and more countries are banning flights from Great Britain for fear of the import of a highly contagious variant of the coronavirus, which is spreading faster than the normal one.
Spain, Portugal and Russia, among others, joined the row of countries. The Netherlands was the first to take measures last weekend.
Spain also closes its border with Gibraltar, a British territory on the Mediterranean.
Scientists emphasize that the mutated virus may already be present in countries that do not have the latest detection tools. It has already been found in the Netherlands, among others.
