"For safety reasons, flights from Great Britain to Poland will be suspended from midnight on Monday," government spokesman Piotr Mueller wrote on Twitter.

He added that "the decision is related to the emergence of a new variant of the coronavirus."

A Polish government crisis management team met in Warsaw on Monday morning to discuss the latest information on the new strain of the virus.

Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy and Bulgaria have already suspended flights to and from Britain, public broadcaster Polish Radio's IAR news agency reported.

Over the weekend, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson imposed an effective lockdown on more than 16 million people in England and reversed plans to ease curbs over Christmas, saying Britain was dealing with a new coronavirus strain up to 70 percent more transmissible than the original, the Reuters news agency reported.

Johnson and his scientific advisors nevertheless said they believe vaccines will still be effective, and added that the new strain is not more deadly or more serious in terms of the illness caused.
