Today, Germany, which has removed many countries and regions from the corona virus travel risk list, including some regions in the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Austria and Greece, shared its new regulation on travel restrictions, effective as of July 1.
The State Department said on Friday that the country will lift its general travel warning for risk areas with a seven-day incidence of coronavirus below 200 from 1 July.
Germany Pointing out that the number of cases has decreased in many places and the number of people who have been vaccinated has increased, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas stated that more normalization can be expected after months of quarantine practices.
Noting that this also applies to travel, Maas stated that after about a year, the general travel warning will be lifted as of July 1 for regions where the number of new cases per 100 thousand people per week is below 200.
Noting that they were able to take this step because common rules would be brought to those who were vaccinated, recovered and tested in Europe, Maas said that the precaution should not be left behind during travels.
RISK WARNING FOR VARIATION ZONES WILL CONTINUE
Pointing out that Covid-19 has mutated, Maas noted that they will therefore continue to issue travel warnings for “high risk regions” and “virus variation regions”.
In the current practice in Germany, travel warnings are issued to regions with more than 50 cases per 100 thousand people per week.
MERKEL: DEVELOPMENTS IN THE NUMBER OF CASE ARE SATISFIED
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was pleased with the decrease in the number of cases in the new type of corona virus (Covid-19) epidemic in her country.
Merkel stated that they evaluated the developments in the Covid-19 outbreak at the press conference held after her online meeting with the state prime ministers.
“WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE DELTA VARIANT”
“At the moment, the developments in terms of the number of Covid-19 cases are extremely pleasing,” said Merkel, adding that the efforts made in recent months have paid off.
However, Merkel, who warned that Covid-19 did not disappear, stated that she was concerned about the rapid spread of the Delta variant of covid-19, which was first seen in India in England.
Merkel urged the public to be careful and noted that the situation in the epidemic should be constantly monitored.
