What did we learn from today’s UK briefing?

Today’s coronavirus briefing was held by Home Secretary Priti Patel. She was joined by chief medical adviser Sir Patrick Vallance and Paul Lincoln, head of the Border Force.

Here’s what they told us:

From 8 June, anyone entering he UK will have to quarantine themselves for 14 days. This measure will be reviewed every three weeks
Travellers will have to provide their address in the UK so that border force staff can provide spot checks
There will be fines of up to Β£1,000 for breaking the rules and some repeat offended could be removed from the UK. Others could be refused entry if they are found to have provided false information
Freight drivers, some medical professionals and foreign officials will be among those who are exempt from the quarantine requirements, as will all those coming from the Common Travel Area with Ireland
The Border Force has intercepted thousands of counterfeit coronavirus tests, as well as masks. Coronavirus supplies have also been used to smuggle contraband, including an AK-47 rifle
Survey data indicates the size of the epidemic is steady or declining
