The UK government has defended its decision to impose a 14-day quarantine on everyone arriving from Spain, after the Spanish PM called it “unjust”.

“We respectfully disagree with the Spanish government’s position on this,” said government minister Simon Clarke.

He added that there had been a “sharp increase” in Covid-19 cases in Spain.

Spanish PM Pedro Sánchez previously said tourists in most regions would be safer from coronavirus than in the UK, and he hoped Britain would reconsider.

The UK is advising against all non-essential travel to Spain, including the Balearic and Canary Islands. It also removed Spain and its islands from the list of countries which are exempt from the 14-day quarantine rule.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the quarantine for people coming to the UK from Spain could be cut to 10 days if they test negative – but senior minister Michael Gove told BBC’s Good Morning Scotland that was “speculation”.

Meanwhile, Germany has also advised against travel to three areas of Spain.
