- Big news this morning is that many countries are cutting off UK as a new coronavirus strain is spreading in Britain. The new virus is not more life threatening than COVID19 but very infectious.
Alarm over the new variant, which was first identified in England, has resulted in British travelers being cut off from much of Europe and other parts of the world as countries imposed restrictions on travel from the UK. UK is quickly putting measures in place to shut down to prevent this new virus strain from going global.
