Grant Shapps gets the start date for France quarantine rules wrong

Transport secretary causes confusion on Thursday night when he gives the wrong date for the start of Covid-19 quarantine measures for arrivals from France. During a TV interview Shapps initially, and correctly, says people will have to self-isolate for 14 days from 4am on Saturday, then later incorrectly says the restrictions come in from Sunday.

    So what? He is only human. This is the problem with the media, too busy trying to point out every single small mistake people make. This is not headline-worthy.

    So he got a date wrong the second time, big deal! The man is undoubtedly under immense pressure, and attending numerous press conferences, and all you can find is one mistaken date, less than 24hrs of an error. Is this what passes for journalism nowadays?! I'm sure a 'paper' such as yours would never print an error?!

    So Britain has elected a government with people who struggle with the concept of telling the time. Tories are all front and no brain.

    Every country has 'infections' right now.
    You should be asked to quarantine by any receiving nation.
    Any mention whitelist/blacklist is to provide the illusion of control of the situation.

    This is the UK government which did NOT put all people coming from high risk areas of the world straight into proper quarantine at the start
    and consequentially has the highest death toll per population in the whole world.
