Coronavirus pandemic: Romania adds six regions of Spain to list of risk areas
Romania’s National Committee for Emergency Situations (CNSU) approved on Monday, August 17, the updated “yellow list” of countries with major epidemiological risk due to the high number of coronavirus cases. Travelers arriving in Romania from these countries are required to go into quarantine for 14 days, starting August 18.
Six regions from Spain were added to the “yellow list,” namely Aragon, Catalonia, Navarra, Comunidad de Madrid, the Balearic Islands, and the Basque Country. These are regions where the cumulative incidence rate of new cases of COVID-19 in the last 14 days per 100,000 inhabitants is higher than that recorded in Romania, Digi24.ro reported, quoting the CNSU decision.
“The quarantine measure was also introduced for persons arriving in Romania from six regions of the Kingdom of Spain, without suspending the flights to and from Romania,” the Strategic Communication Group announced.
The “yellow list” also includes Brazil, Israel, the US, Argentina, Luxembourg, the Republic of Moldova, and Malta. The full list is available here.
