George Morgan-Grenville, CEO of luxury tour operator Red Savannah and leader of the "Quash Quarantine" campaign against the UK government, says: “I think people are going to fall into two camps initially. You’re going to have people who are so scared by what they’ve seen on the news and what the government is telling them that they’re not going to go anywhere. They may not even travel domestically, unless they have a second home somewhere. So there are definitely going to be some travellers who are not going to travel.
