LONDON (Reuters) – British transport minister Grant Shapps said he will make an announcement later on Wednesday regarding COVID-19 testing at airports which could lead to the UK’s 14-day quarantine period for travellers being shortened.

“I will be making the announcement later today to parliament but it involves a task force. So looking at the systems which would enable us to have testing,” he told UK media.
