The government’s latest warning about future international travel is a reminder that it is still too early to book a flight or vacation, a group of consumers said.
Rory Boland, editor of Which Travel magazine, said:
Some airlines and holiday providers claim that it is safe to book now thanks to flexible booking policies, but while the best policies can reduce the financial risk of disruption, they cannot completely eliminate it.
Whether you’ve already booked or want to book, wait until the government’s travel task force reports on the next steps before deciding what to do with your travel plans. The government must also prioritize safety, affordable tests, vaccine passports and clarity about refunds when travel is disrupted.
Veterinarians warn of a possible link between a new variant of coronavirus and heart problems in cats and dogs after an increase in the number of pets suffering from myocarditis at a special veterinary hospital in Buckinghamshire during the second wave of the pandemic.
“We don’t want to spread panic unnecessarily, especially because we currently have strong doubts about human-to-pet transmission, but not the other way around – and we certainly don’t know that. But veterinarians should be aware of this so they can start testing if they suspect a potential case of Covid infection, ”said Luca Ferasin, a cardiologist at the Ralph Veterinary Center for Recommendations in Marlow, who led research, which has not been reviewed yet.
