U.K. Government pondering scrapping quarantine for the twice vaccinated in favour of daily tests. Critical word there is ‘pondering’. It doesn’t mean they’ve decided either if it’s the route they’ll go down or when they might do it. I don’t think they are too bothered about this currently while they try to block the advance of the ‘Delta’ variant.
Also, the U.K. has done better than the majority of Europe with vaccinations and they’ll be mindful that other European countries won’t want Brits travelling to them and risk importing the highly transmissible Delta variant while more of their populations are vulnerable, so the ‘testing only for the vaccinated’ policy won’t apply if two way travel is blocked.
As ever, believe it when it’s cast in concrete and even then, look for the drawbacks - like switching Portugal from green to amber when cases there skyrocketed. Leaving a lot of British holidaymakers scrambling to get home before the window closed and/or costing them a small fortune in the process. In my view we need much more extensive global vaccination and numbers down to statistically insignificant before the leashes come off, but as in all things, I stand to be corrected!
