Cyprus has been removed from the list of quarantine-free travel destinations, but Germany and Sweden have remained safe, despite expectations that they would also be cut.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps made the announcement via Twitter this evening.
Last week, the Canary Islands, the Greek island of Mykonos, Denmark and the Maldives were added back to the travel corridor list.
Previously, countries with more than 20 cases per 100,000 people over a seven-day period were at risk of being removed from the list, however it seems that the government are now allowing for a higher rate of infection, with the new threshold reported to be 100 cases per 100,000 people.
In recent weeks, Cyprus has recorded a spike in coronavirus cases with 111.7 new cases of COVID-19 recorded per 100,000 people in its population over a seven-day period, however the country has only recorded just over 3,900 cases and 25 deaths.
In comparison the UK has recorded 965,000 cases and 45,955 deaths.
