Signs of virus 2nd wave appearing in Europe: UK premier

But he defended the move and insisted the Government would not hesitate to act if flare-ups of coronavirus occurred in other destinations.

"Let's be absolutely clear about what's happening in Europe, amongst some of our European friends, I'm afraid you are starting to see in some places the signs of a second wave of the pandemic", Johnson said Tuesday.

"It's vital that when people are coming back from overseas, if they are coming back from a place where I'm afraid there is another outbreak, they must go into quarantine", he said. But we can only continue to grow with your support.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez called Britain's new recommendation "a mistake", saying that the upsurge in new COVID-19 cases is only focused in the regions of Catalonia and Aragon and is much less severe than the number of cases reported in the United Kingdom itself.

Despite his claims Johnson has said it was up to individuals whether they took a holiday overseas.

"These are decisions for families, for individuals, about where they want to go", he said.

Speaking to Sky News during a visit to Nottingham, Boris Johnson said his government's job is to take measures when they see those signs.

Sanchez defended Spanish tourist hotspots, including the Balearic and Canary islands, Andalucia and the Valencia region, saying they had "a cumulative incidence of the virus that is lower than that now in the United Kingdom".

"For customers who are due to travel to these destinations after the dates given above, we will provide an additional update once we receive more information from the government".

"And we all remember what happened last time. We would like to sincerely thank our customers for their understanding and patience".

Meanwhile, the Madrid regional government has tightened restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19, requiring face masks in all public areas, limiting private gatherings to no more than 10 people, and forcing nightlife venues to close their doors at 1 a.m. - much earlier than usual in Spanish summertime.

Shadow transport secretary Jim McMahon said: "The Government's handling of this issue has been nothing short of chaotic".

The rate of infection in Spain is 35.1 instances per 100,000 persons, although the Uk is at 14.7, according to the latest figures from the European Centre for Illness Avoidance and Manage.

The new government programme, announced on Monday, purports to tackle obesity in the United Kingdom with the introduction of thousands of miles of protected bike lanes, a ban on adverts for "unhealthy foods" high in sugar, fat, or salt, before the country's 9pm broadcasting watershed.

Spain's tourism association - known as CEHAT - has offered to pay for tourists to take coronavirus tests and called the quarantine decision "illogical" and "unfair".

Mr Johnson said: "We are always looking at ways in which we can mitigate the impact of the quarantine, try to help people, try to make sure that the science is working to help travellers and holidaymakers".
