ENGLAND'S deputy chief medical officer, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, has said there is 30 days in February. 

When asked why the Government hadn't imposed a quarantine on international travellers arriving in the UK, he said country had banned travellers coming from coronavirus hotspots like Wuhan where the outbreak started.

Van-Tam told the daily Downing Street briefing: "On the question of quarantine: why didn't we do it previously? And we're talking subject to ministerial announcements about maybe doing it now. Um, well my recollection is we did do it before. On the 29th of February and then I think on the 30th of February we announced that travellers returning from the hotspots of Wuhan. They had to self-isolate at home for 14 days."
