Let’s hope the UK evacuations go along the lines of Australia/New Zealand where the evacuees are quarantined properly rather than get told to just ‘self isolate’. Can you see everyone just doing that?

Updated - Sky News reporting British evacuees will be quarantined for 14 days at an army base.

I believe that would be South Cerney, but BBC reporting NHS Accommodation in NW now. Not sure which source is correct.

600 people held on a cruise ship in the med!
A couple awaiting further tests to discount Coronavirus. I suppose there's worse places to be stuck.
