The Home Secretary Priti Patel has justified the introduction of this requirement at this time to protect the country from a second wave of COVID-19 cases, as it is envisaged that as the UK transitions from lockdown, the number of passengers arriving in the country will increase dramatically and increase the risk of transmission of the virus to the UK community.
