There is a growing number of positive cases among youngsters too. However, the number of patients requiring hospitalization is extremley low, when compared to the first wave in Spring.

Because of this second wave there are more restrictions in London, like the opening times of bars and restaurants, the number of people allowed in closed spaces, etc.
For many travellers there is also the inconvenience of having to quarantine for 14 days on arrival, and this makes travelling not advisable at present.

The list of countries that do not have to quarantine is constantly updated, and can be found on the government website (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-countries-and-territories-exempt-from-advice-against-all-but-essential-international-travel).
