France advises citizens against travel to Catalonia over COVID-19 fears”

Speaking for the duration of a go to to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris on Friday, French Prime Minister Jean Castex confirmed a checklist of 16 "red" worldwide locations whose travelers will be subjected to "systematic" screening on arrival.

Along with the United States, India and Brazil, which are reporting tens of thousands of new cases each day, the countries include Algeria, Bahrain, Israel, South Africa, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Panama, Peru, Serbia, Turkey and Madagascar. We strongly recommend French citizens to avoid travelling there as long as the situation in that territory does not improve,"Castex said after the Defense Council meeting led by French President Emmanuel Macron to assess the progress of the virus in France".

Castex, who was speaking on the sidelines of a visit to Paris Charles-de-Gaulle Airport, north of the French capital, also said the French government planned to reinforce controls at borders.

From Aug. 1 people arriving from 16 countries outside the European Union where the infection rate is deemed to be high will be subject to compulsory testing on arrival at French airports and sea ports, Castex said.

"We know that in a number of these countries, there is no testing strategy and that access to tests is hard, so we have chose to generalize tests on arrival", he said.
