“The overwhelming majority of countries are in favor of pre-departure tests,” said a spokesman for the Brussels authority on Tuesday after a meeting of representatives of national health ministries. In principle, a “coordinated approach” was agreed. The discussion is to be continued this Wednesday at a meeting of the EU states at expert level.

EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides wrote on Twitter after the meeting on Tuesday that measures such as pre-departure tests and increased monitoring of wastewater had come closer. European unity remains the strongest instrument against Covid-19.
