Hong Kong's government announced Monday that all incoming flights from the United Kingdom will be banned beginning July 1 in order to combat the highly virulent Delta variant of the coronavirus.

The statement stated that "all passenger flights from the United Kingdom will be prevented from landing in Hong Kong."

It was also announced that the United Kingdom would be placed in the "very high-risk" list of countries, the city's most severe grade for pandemic travel.

The latest measures over the Delta variant, first found in India, will restrict passengers who have stayed in the UK for more than two hours from boarding passenger flights to the city.

The authorities stated they increased anti-pandemic measures in light of the epidemic's "recent comeback" and the "widespread Delta variant virus strain" in the United Kingdom.

The Hong Kong government also stated that passengers travelling from the United Kingdom had a number of cases of the L452R virus strain, a mutation associated to Delta.

Last Monday, the city confirmed its first local Covid case with the Delta variety, breaking a 16-day dry spell.

The Delta variation has become the prevalent coronavirus strain in the United Kingdom, according to officials.

Several other nations, including the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Nepal, and Pakistan, have already prohibited flights from Hong Kong due to the growing prevalence of the Delta strain.
