A decision that had already been taken by Scotland and Wales and now extends across the UK.
According to the British press, the increase in the number of infection cases in Portugal in the last week will have exceeded the limit of 20 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

Continental Portugal is not the only one to be removed from the UK tourist corridor. Hungary, France, Polynesia and Réunion are also part of the British black list.
