Heathrow has opened a dedicated terminal for passengers on direct flights from red list countries, following concerns that they were mixing with those from green and amber nations. Travellers on direct flights from red list destinations will now go through Terminal 3, although a dedicated facility for processing such travellers is eventually planned for Terminal 4.

It comes after airport staff raised fears for their safety because of overcrowding, amid concerns that travellers arriving from red list countries were mixing with those from green and amber.

Professor Adam Finn, a member of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), said that “things are much more up in the air” than they were earlier this month, due to the spread of the Indian variant of coronavirus in the UK. UK coronavirus cases exceeded 3,000 on Monday for the sixth day in a row.

Before this, the UK had not surpassed that figure since 12 April.
