Italy is to introduce a five-day Covid quarantine for travellers from the UK from Monday amid growing concerns about the spread of the Delta variant.
The Italian government said travellers from the UK will also be required to have mandatory Covid tests.
Italy, however, will also open the door to USA, Canada, Japan and the EU, if visitors show they have been vaccinated or recently tested negative for Covid.
The new measures follow similar curbs on UK travellers by France and Germany.
Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza added a ban on people arriving from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will remain in place.

What are the case rates across the UK?
UK coronavirus infections have risen slightly in the last week, with an estimated 119,000 people – up from 110,000 – now positive for the virus.
The Office for National Statistics figures, up to 12 June, suggest one in every 540 people is infected.

What do these charts show?
Cases are people who have tested positive for coronavirus. Public health bodies may occasionally revise their case numbers. Case rate by age only available for England. *The "average area" means the middle ranking council or local government district when ranked by cases per 100,000 people.
The case rate chart shows how many people have tested positive each day for every 100,000 people in that area. The dark blue line shows the average daily rate over the past seven days. This average helps to show whether cases are rising or falling. The case rate by age chart shows how many people have tested positive in each age group per 100,000 people. Steeper rises in older age groups are of more concern because older people are more likely to be badly affected by the virus and are more likely to need hospital care. The case rate by age shows a rate. This means the values for the two age groups cannot be added together to get the overall case rate in each area.

Vaccines are data for first doses. England and Scotland data is by local authority, Wales is by health board area, Northern Ireland is national data. The percentages of people vaccinated is calculated using the most recent mid-year population estimates published by the Office for National Statistics. The actual size of the population in each area may differ and so the percentages are also estimates.

Deaths are where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate. The chart shows the number of deaths recorded each week per 100,000 people in that area. Covid deaths are in red, other deaths are in grey. The average is the monthly average of deaths in the last five years between 2014-2019. This average will continue to be used in 2021. Recording of deaths over Christmas and New Year was affected by the bank holidays – trends should be treated with caution.
