The European Union intends to keep its external borders closed to travelers from most countries for at least another two weeks due to spikes in the number of coronavirus cases. This was reported by Bloomberg, citing diplomatic sources.

According to the outlet, the EU is leaning toward shortening a list of 13 states, which includes Canada, China, Japan, and South Korea, whose residents are allowed to visit the bloc.

The union’s travel “white” list also includes Algeria, Australia, Georgia, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Thailand, Tunisia, and Uruguay.

As we reported earlier, in Spain, Catalonia partially restored quarantine restrictions amid the second wave of the coronavirus infection.

The government of Catalonia now says all nightclubs and late-night bars in the region are to close for the next two weeks. The Spanish defense ministry is also implementing an early response tracker system to prevent any upturn in cases in the military.

The health ministry reported more than 900 new cases of the virus.
