Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Johnson confirms France may go on ‘red list’ for Covid border controls” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson has said a decision may have to be taken “very soon” about whether to impose tougher border measures on France over concerns about the spread of potentially vaccine-resistant Covid variants.

Labour has called for France to be added to the “red list” of countries from which most travel to the UK is banned. The prime minister said that could not be ruled out but warned it would cause significant disruption.

In particular, some regions of France are reporting relatively high levels of the South African variant of the disease, though these are falling.
