The authorities of the UK and Portugal mitigate the restrictions aiming for the fight against coronavirus as DW reported.

Portugal mitigates quarantine restrictions for tourists coming to the country from the majority of other EU states. It will concern EU countries, where new infections during the past two weeks did not surpass 500 cases per 100,000 citizens. Guests from these countries, with a negative test, can enter Portugal even without an emergency.

The UK also mitigates quarantine restrictions; however, the set of measures that will be canceled differs in each area. In two districts of Scotland, no restrictions will be lifted due to the coronavirus outbreak as BBC reported.
