These four countries are likely to join the other 43 high-risk countries currently in crisis Government Travel Red List, An analyst said.
In his analysis, as long as the detection rate is also higher than two per thousand, he classified any country with a daily case rate of 71 per million or less as green.
After delving into the 7-day average number of cases reported per million people, Boyle drew a chart of the countries with the highest incidence.
He pointed out that although “most of them are already on the red list, Bahrain, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago and Kuwait do not. So it is expected that these will be added soon.”
Four people are currently Amber list, British people shouldn’t travel there either.
British people are currently prohibited from travelling to red-listed countries or regions.
Those returning to the UK from a red list country must be quarantined in a Covid-safe hotel upon arrival.
A mandatory 10-day stay at one of the hotels will cost £1,750 per person.
Boyle said: “We will soon have another update on the British government’s traffic light ratings.”
Although he is “not sure when we will receive this update”, he thinks it will be between June 1st and 7th.
Boyle added: “There are three other countries that appear to be clear examples of being on the Green List-Malta, Finland and Slovakia.”
Boyle said: “If the EU’s case rate threshold is used, there are seven other countries that can be classified as green.
“Five of them are in the European Union: Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy and Luxembourg.
“We also have Russia, but this may also violate politics.
“The last is the United States. It happens to be online, so whether it is included will depend on which group of voters the ministers are more worried about.”
Boyle said, “It will be big news to include the United States on the green list, but because the government has been criticized for failing to include India on the red list early, I suspect they want to be seen as taking a cautious approach.
“Therefore, this time the United States may just’miss production cuts.'”
He added: “But I do think that at the next review point in late June, it will be difficult to find a reasonable reason to exclude it unless the’variant of concern’ provides an excuse.
“The government also confirmed that it will treat the islands of Spain and Greece separately from the mainland.
“Because of the low number of cases on the island, I do think it is very likely Spain and Greek Islands Will also enter the green list. “
