If countries get the axe, this means that anyone arriving in the UK arriving from that destination will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.
With an estimated 400,000 Britons currently on holiday in France, those who do not wish to quarantine will need to return to the UK before the travel ban comes into action.
France recorded more than 2,500 cases of coronavirus yesterday.
The sudden spike in cases is a record high for the country since their lockdown measures were eased.
The country’s cases per 100,000 is currently below 20 at 18.1 cases per 100,000 people in France.
This is for dates between August 6 and August 12.
In the previous week, the rate was 13.1 cases per 100,000 people.
