Meanwhile, Austria and Italy have said that they will ban flights coming from Britain. However, he did not share any information related to the timing of the ban.

The governments of the three member countries of the European Union said that they are taking this decision in view of the strict steps taken by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for London and surrounding areas on Saturday.
