France ready to mirror British quarantine on visitors -AFP

PARIS, May 22 (Reuters) – France regrets a British decision to impose a quarantine on people arriving from mainland Europe, and stands ready to impose reciprocal measures, France’s AFP news agency quoted the interior ministry as saying on Friday.

Britain’s interior minister Priti Patel said earlier on Friday she will introduce a COVID-19 quarantine for travellers arriving from abroad from June 8, a measure that airlines have warned will devastate their industry. (Reporting by Christian Lowe Editing by Chris Reese)
