Germany looking at air travel ban and border shutdowns in bid to curb spread of Covid-19 variants
The German government is considering border closures and a ban on almost all air traffic in an attempt to limit the spread of more transmissible Covid-19 variants, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Tuesday.
“The danger posed by numerous virus mutations forces us to consider drastic measures,” he told the tabloid Bild.
“That includes significantly stricter border checks, especially at borders with high-risk areas, but also reducing air travel to Germany to almost zero, as Israel is currently doing.”
On Sunday, Seehofer reportedly presented Chancellor Angela Merkel with several plans for restricting travel to the country. Bild reported that Merkel was in favor of tightening travel measures.
However, the German Travel Association has blasted any such move, in the light of the damage already inflicted on the tourism industry by the pandemic, and voiced its concerns about freedom of movement.
