Rapid Spread Of Mutant COVID-19 Strain Leaves Priyanka Chopra Jonas Stranded In The UK

Just when we all saw a glimmer of hope coming our way with the COVID-19 vaccines, the new strain of coronavirus has left us with far too many uncertainties. As the mutant virus continues to spread in the United Kingdom, the country's administration has imposed a tier 4 lockdown in various areas. In order to prevent it from spreading further, numerous countries, including India, have banned flights from the UK.

This is why a large number of people are stranded in the country including B-town star Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Grand Masti actor Aftab Shivdasani. According to media reports, both actors will have to stay in the UK for the time being.
