0 20

Concerns about new variants of the corona force France to test some of the passengers disembarking from China.

From January 1, France will require a negative corona test from all passengers arriving from China.

It will also be mandatory to wear a mask on board flights from China to France.

This is what the French transport minister, Clément Beaune, writes on Twitter.

The corona test must be done no later than 48 hours before departure from China.

The tests can also be carried out at airports where passengers arrive from China.

Any positive test will be screened for new variants of the coronavirus. This was announced by the French government according to the AFP news agency.

In Europe, there is generally doubt as to whether the official data coming from China can be trusted.

Italy and Spain have already introduced similar rules. The United States, Israel and a number of Asian countries have done the same.

The UK government is also expected to announce shortly that travelers from China must present a negative corona test before entry. This was learned by several British media, including the BBC.

In China, the government changed course in a short period of time and removed the restrictions that had been introduced to limit the spread of the corona.

This led to an increase in the number of sick Chinese and put China’s hospitals under pressure.

The EU health agency announced on Thursday that the type of restrictions imposed by Spain and Italy are not necessary.

The Commissioner for Health of the EU, Stella Kyriades, asked the member states to resort to their national surveillance mechanisms, wrote the news agency dpa.

In Denmark, there are currently no entry restrictions as a result of the corona pandemic in China.

Statens Serum Institut keeps a close eye on how the situation develops and consults with foreign colleagues.
