Paris, May 23 (EFE) – France is considering the possibility that the United Kingdom is excluded from the “green list” of countries outside the European Union, with no travel restrictions on reopening borders , And this is due to the spread of the Indian version of Coronavirus there.

In a radio and television interview by RTL and LCI, the minister said: “We have one British question left” because “we are very cautious” about the development of the Indian version there.

Germany has also imposed a two-week isolation period from this Sunday on those entering from the United Kingdom, even for those who may submit a negative Covid test, due to the expansion of the Indian version.
Spain, for its part, announced on Friday that it would be classified as “safe” from tomorrow for travelers arriving from the United Kingdom and from nine other countries outside the European Union: Japan, China, Australia , New Zealand, Singapore, Israel, South Korea, Thailand and Rwanda.
