But capital finance needs revenue in order to repay it. I suspect that only currently contracted projects that would be too costly to stop in terms of penalty payments to the contractor would be continued. The funding will be in place but until the decision is taken to draw it down presumably it will just sit in the financier's bank.

Why do you assume they wouldn't be Covid free?

Probably because on the day that the 14 day quarantine rule came into force in the UK, Sky News and the BBC and other news outlets interviewed a bloke getting off a flight from Switzerland who was clearly ill, had no idea of the current rules and marched off to the Tube! I believe that Iran has had Covid19 quite badly, is not known for its political transparency or healthcare system and is generalyl antagonistic towards the UK. Add the incompetency of the UK authorities into the mix, it isn't really surprising is people are a little skeptical about the inbound pax on an Iranair flight!

They've had fewer deaths than the UK and Spain. Would the poster have said the same about an Iberia flight landing?

According to this article, Iran is not on the exempt list, so anyone arriving from Iran has to self isolate for 14 days.

Along with a number of other countries. However, one would suspect that anyone arriving from Iran will be under some sort of surveilance, maybe?
