Holidaymakers in Greece, Croatia and Turkey will be nervous this morning with reports that these countries could be the next to be added to the United Kingdom’s quarantine list.

Thousands of British holidaymakers are currently holidaying in Greece, Croatia and Turkey, with each country seeing a spike in cases of COVID-19 over recent days. Holidaymakers returning from these countries would be required to quarantine for 14 days when arriving home if the government decides to add them to the ever increasing list of countries.

In Croatia, the chief epidemiologist Krunoslav Capak blamed nightclubs and bars for the rise in cases, stating that the majority of new cases came from young people visiting such venues.

The news follows the decision last week to add countries such as France and The Netherlands to the quarantine list which sparked chaos with thousands of holidaymakers rushing home to avoid having to quarantine for 14 days.
