Coronavirus: PM Boris Johnson says UK to set out new, tougher COVID-19 measures

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the government would set out new, tougher border measures later on Wednesday, adding there were no easy answers after the COVID-19 death toll in the United Kingdom surpassed 100,000.

The British government is expected to announce plans for limited hotel quarantine for Britons returning from 30 high-risk countries covered by a travel ban, the Times reported on Wednesday.

Johnson has said he was looking at the option of introducing quarantine hotels for those coming to Britain to prevent the risk of "vaccine-busting" new coronavirus variants entering the country.

Speaking in parliament, Johnson said that he and the government accepted responsibility for the actions they had taken during the course of the pandemic, adding that now was not the right time to reflect on the lessons they had learned.

Britain has suffered a sharp rise in infections and deaths in the new year, fuelled partly by a newer, more highly contagious variant of the coronavirus first identified in southeast England.

The death toll in Britain from the coronavirus pandemic passed 100,000 people on Tuesday.
