Why are foreigners still allowed to travel in and out of the UK? Why bring foreign viruses here?

Foreigners are anyone who travels abroad from the UK, period. Send them all away from the UK, on a one way ticket, then ban them all.

    If they've already "brought" virusus here, sending them away won't help, will it?

    What makes you think a virus won't travel just as happily on or in a returning British citizen?

    Because life would be bloody uncomfortable without imports and exports

    The virus is already firmly entrenched in the UK - the risk is higher to travellers.

    Although the UK Government's failure to limit incoming travellers, and mandate quarantine for all on arrival, is laughable.

    Or even better....nail or weld stuck all doors to people's home and in three-four weeks time there will be no virus anymore.
