More and more EU countries are introducing mandatory tests for travelers from China because of the corona wave there.

Now it’s suddenly fast. Germany has already reacted. Just like Austria, Sweden, Greece or Belgium. They all decided on Thursday to introduce mandatory testing for people entering China because of the corona wave there. It was only on Wednesday evening that health experts from the 27 EU countries strongly recommended such a test. France, Italy and Spain had already decided on measures independently beforehand. Anyone who tests positive must be in quarantine.

In Switzerland, too, the call for stricter measures to protect the population from possible virus mutations is getting louder. However, the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) still sees no urgent need for action. The federal government is based on the EU, the BAG had always said. The recommendations of the EU meeting would now be examined in detail, it said on request.
