Coronavirus: Germany declares Spain a COVID risk area | News | DW | 09.07.2021

Germany on Friday listed Spain as a basic risk area due to rising number of coronavirus infections in the country, including Majorca and the Canary Islands.

The decision comes as the spread of the more contagious coronavirus delta variant prompts fears of new outbreaks across Europe.

Germany’s Foreign Ministry had previously considered only a few regions in Spain as risk areas.

But starting Sunday, travelers who spend time anywhere in Spain within 10 days before entering Germany will have to present a negative coronavirus test or proof vaccination or recovery.
