On Tuesday, European leaders voted to close at least 26 countries, almost all visitors from the rest of the world for at least 30 days to stop the spread of the coronavirus, starting a long period of isolation, as there is nothing in modern European history abroad. Wartime.
Britain has said it has no plans to participate in the event, said the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.
The heads of government of member countries of the European Union met by teleconference and approved the proposal of the head block to close it to all nonessential visitors in a 30 day period.
The closure represents the first coordinated response to the epidemic from the European Union, the richest and most integrated bloc of developed countries. Still the government took a variety of measures to slow the spread of the virus at home, sometimes accusing each other of spreading of the epidemic.
Special exceptions will be made for European citizens and residents returning home, although some countries are asking them to isolate themselves within two weeks, in some cases away from their families. Medical workers and scientists will also be exempt from these measures, as well as people living in one European country and communicating at work.
In practice, the European localization will depend on each country.
