Concern across Europe as continent faces second wave: Update on the situation in Germany

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Concern across Europe as continent faces second wave: Update on the situation in Germany” – below is their description.

The European Union adopted on Tuesday a “traffic light” system to guide member states whether to require #Covid-19 testing or quarantines for non-essential EU travellers such as tourists. The recommendation aims to end a confusing patchwork of restrictions and to restore free movement. With cases spiking across #Europe, only a few areas would currently qualify for the lowest-risk “green” band allowing unrestricted travel. They include most of eastern Germany, parts of the Nordic and Baltic countries, some areas of Bulgaria and Greece. FRANCE 24’s Nick Spicer tells us more about the situation in Germany.
