Millions of people have had their holidays affected by the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus.

Foreign countries have closed their borders and holidaymakers face having to quarantine if they travel somewhere not on the Foreign Office's "air bridge" list.

Last weekend the UK government dramatically announced that all travellers returning from Spain would need to quarantine for 14 days and issued a travel ban to mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands and Canaries – causing panic to thousands of people already visiting the region.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned that there is a sign of a "second wave" of coronavirus infections across Europe and the government has said that more countries could be removed from the "safe list" with Croatia and Belgium reportedly being examined due to a spike in infection.

Cabinet minister Oliver Dowden has said that while people should continue to book holidays they “need to be aware of the risk that quarantine could be imposed”.

With fears that other countries could join Spain on the "no-go" list many Brits are turning to staycations for a well deserved break.
