(ANSA) – ROME, JUNE 18 – Denmark has announced that
from 27 June it will open its borders to all EU countries
except Sweden and Portugal. The opening will follow a series of
very precise rules, as the minister explained in a note
of Foreign Affairs Jeppe Kofod.
All Schengen countries, plus the United Kingdom, will be
classified as “open”, “in quarantine” or “closed” a
depending on how many new coronavirus cases they recorded in
a week. States will be included in the first category
who had fewer than 20 new Covid-19 infections per 100,000
inhabitants, in the second those with less than 30 and in the third
those with more than thirty. The list will be published on June 25,
two days before the new regime comes into force.
Sweden and Portugal, writes the newspaper The Local, are already
been classified as “in quarantine” because they had
respectively 75.5 cases and 20.2 per 100,000 inhabitants. (HANDLE).
