The German authorities this Friday removed the Spanish regions of Cantabria and Castile-La Mancha from the list of risk areas due to COVID-19, as they did last week for Asturias and Extremadura.
From this Sunday at 00:00, the citizens of these two regions no longer have to adhere to quarantine when entering Germany, the Spanish embassy reported on its social networks.
This measure is based on the criteria of the Rober-Koch Institute, which automatically records the weekly incidence in different regions and relaxes the access restrictions for Germany in the event of a decrease below 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
In the last few weeks the German authorities have removed other Spanish Autonomous Communities such as the Balearic and Canary Islands and, more recently, Extremadura and Asturias from this list. Andalusia, Aragon, Castile and León, Catalonia, Madrid, Melilla, Navarra, the Basque Country and La Rioja are still preserved.
At the international level, Germany has also abolished quarantine for tourists from the Netherlands, Cyprus, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Liechtenstein and Monaco.
In terms of deaths in Germany due to COVID-19, the country crossed the line of 88,000 deaths this Friday, after adding 192 in the past 24 hours.
In addition, 7,380 new cases were registered, which corresponds to a total of 3,669,870 infected people, according to data from the Robert Koch Institute. The cumulative incidence over the past seven days has fallen to 39.8 cases per 100,000 population.
