Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary calls UK travel quarantine 'a shambles'

The UK's travel quarantine policy is a "Shambles of mismanagement", Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has said. He said the UK quarantine was "Lumpy and defective" and that the UK needed to use testing at airports to help the safe return of international travel. Boris Johnson has said travel quarantines are "Vital" to fight Covid-19 as testing can be unreliable. Mr O'Leary said he supported a two-test system, where a passenger would be tested on arrival at an airport and then tested five days later, and if they got two negative tests they would leave quarantine early. UK government sources have indicated that they are looking at system where the two tests would be eight days apart to further minimise the risk of "False negative" results.
