This means all travellers entering the UK will be required to endure ten days of mandatory quarantine.
Anyone found to be breaking this rule could be slapped with a fine of up to £1,000.
Earlier today, Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps also warned Britons flouting quarantine could face a criminal record.
So far, three major new strains have been detected.
The first originated in the UK, the second was found to have originated from South Africa, and the third from Brazil.
It is not yet known yet whether or not the Brazilian variant is highly contagious, however, the UK variant is said to be 70 percent more transmissible.
This is a breaking news story, more information to follow…
