      • Madeira is not demanding a pre-flight test.

        The question begs, who are these 12 people? Were they unvaccinated people who were tested and found positive the airport. Are the Brita coming directly from the UK or other places?

        • My son who I am taking with me is 56yrs old & a Home Carer who visits clients in their own home, he is double vaccinated & has to have a Government test every week on a Friday getting his result on his phone 3days later (Sun). I too am double vaccinated & am 79yrs old & should have had our Boosters before we fly with Jet2 to Madeira on the 22nd November 2021. We both have to pay for a PCR test at the airport with the result 2days later to say we are fit to fly. I understand that masks have to be worn on the flight too.I will also be going details of names/passport details/that we will be staying for 1wk at Madeira Beach Club within the Carlton Hotel required by ‘Madeira Safe’. I too am concerned about the spread of Covid in the U.K. & also the rise of case in the cases being brought in to Madeira from the UK but if there I any doubt I will be cancelling our flights as that is the only alternative as I feel that we are doing all we can. What are your thoughts please.

        • I would also like to know which area of UK they are from and which airline is transporting them. They must have tested positive at airport and therefore should be isolating shouldn’t they?

  1. Everyone sould be required to test before entering Madeira, Letting in vaccinated people without a test is not the way to reduce cases as we can see from local transmission numbers.

    • the positive cases were all unvaccinated people. Madeira is definitely not going to impose a test on vaccinated people, as the island rightfully wishes to attract tourists without off-putting tests. And yes, I know even fully vaccinated people can – in theory – infect others, but the risk is much, much lower than with unvaccinated people. And yes, I know that covid won’t go away even with everybody vaccinated, but it will be reduced to an annoying illness that few people really suffer from. And yes, I know it’s not legally possible and at the risk of very angry reactions I say it anyway: it would improve things enormously if only vaccinated people were allowed to travel.

  2. We are due to fly out on 20th Sept, although we have been double vaccinated we will be doing a PCR before we leave, my job is in social care so LFT test every day and PCR once a week, I think everyone must have a test before you fly.

    • It’s a pity that there’s no information on age and coupled with that on whether single- double-jabbed (or not at all).

      This one figure is extreme but over the past maybe ten days prior to this at least one person (maximum was 5) in the stats was from the UK.
