The number of UK hotel rooms available for quarantine for arrivals from red list countries is "rapidly expanding", according to the Department of Health and Social Care, APA reports.
“We have doubled the number of hotel rooms available from Monday and will continue to increase availability on a daily basis," a spokesperson said.
It comes as another country - Nigeria - went on the UK's red list today. There are 11 countries - all in Africa - on the UK's red list. The only people allowed to enter the UK from these countries are UK or Irish nationals, or UK residents. They have to pay for and self-isolate in a pre-booked government-approved hotel for 10 days.
But some people have been unable to book rooms in government approved hotels because of capacity.
The government is advising passengers not to travel to the UK from red list countries unless they've booked a quarantine hotel package.
