British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Saturday that Britain will require all incoming travelers to undergo a quarantine until they test negative for COVID-19.

The news comes after the emergence of the new 'Omicron' mutant.

"Now we need to go further and implement a new screening system," he said in a press conference held hours after the first two cases of the new mutant were confirmed in Britain.
