Coronavirus latest news: Government too cautious in unlocking international holiday destinations, say travel bosses
Portugal only major tourist destination on 'green list' Holidaymakers face airport queues of up to eight hours Britain to be Covid-free by August: vaccine chief Vaccine passport app will be ready for summer holidays Duchess leads treasure hunt for lockdown picture book Subscribe to The Telegraph for a month-long free trial Industry bosses have urged further clarity on when other holiday destinations could be added to the quarantine-free "green list" amid criticism the Government has been too cautious in its approach to unlocking international travel. Portugal, Gibraltar and Israel are among 12 destinations that will be on the green list from May 17 - with some countries on the list still not accepting holidaymakers. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the removal of the ban on international leisure travel was necessarily cautious, but sector leaders warned it could delay the industry's recovery. EasyJet boss Johan Lundgren said: "The decision to put so few European countries into the green tier is simply not justified by the data or the science and is inconsistent with the approach to reopen the domestic economy." Airlines UK, an industry body that represents UK carriers, said the Government must make "major additions" to the green list at the next review point in three weeks: "The EU has said vaccinated people will be able to travel without restrictions, which leaves the UK at risk of falling behind and not opening up international travel to key markets across Europe as well as the United States." Brian Strutton, general secretary of pilots' union Balpa, accused the Government of an "excess of caution". Follow the latest updates below.

NASA's Perseverance rover captured the humming sounds of the tiny Ingenuity helicopter flying above the Martian surface. Why it matters: By recording sound on Mars, scientists will be able to learn more about how the Martian atmosphere works and potentially diagnose problems with Perseverance, should they pop up.Get market news worthy of your time with Axios Markets. Subscribe for free.Driving the news: NASA released a video Friday showing Ingenuity's fourth flight on April 30 when the helicopter flew a 872-foot round-trip test. Perseverance recorded the flight, capturing the Martian wind and hum of the helicopter's blades spinning at 2,537 rpm. (If you're watching the full video, it helps to use headphones.)"We had carried out tests and simulations that told us the microphone would barely pick up the sounds of the helicopter, as the Mars atmosphere damps the sound propagation strongly," David Mimoun, the science lead for Perseverance's SuperCam Mars microphone, said in a statement. "We have been lucky to register the helicopter at such a distance."The big picture: Ingenuity is the first human-made drone to ever fly on another planet, and NASA hopes the tests it's running with the 4-pound helicopter will pave the way for future missions using other drones on Mars and elsewhere. What's next: NASA will continue to test Ingenuity on Mars, allowing it to go on farther flights and one-way trips, potentially to help scout out areas of interest for Perseverance.

Conservatives in and out of Congress are expressing opposition to Rep. Elise Stefanik ’s rise toward House Republicans' No. 3 leadership job, grumbling that's unlikely to derail her but serves notice that the right wing is battling again to affect the party’s future. House Republicans plan to meet privately next week, probably Wednesday, and seem certain to oust Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., from that top post. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., seems likely to postpone a vote on replacing Cheney until sometime later, according to two House GOP aides who discussed the delay on condition of anonymity, giving restive conservatives a chance to coalesce behind an alternative.

Indian television stations broadcast images of patients lying on stretchers outside hospitals waiting to be admitted, with hospital beds and critical oxygen in short supply.
