Officials in Ireland said they plan to place a quarantine on British travelers come July because of the country’s “significantly poorer” response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The move comes as the country is removing restrictions from other countries starting next month.

Current rules call for visitors to Ireland to remain quarantined for 14 days as part of an effort to prevent the spread of the virus into the country.  Ireland has seen a much lower death toll than the United Kingdom, with just 1,726 fatalities versus 43,000 in Britain.

The number of deaths per million members of the population was 637 on Wednesday in the United Kingdom versus 350 in Ireland.
