[ロンドン ５日 ロイター] – Airlines and airport groups criticized the European Union (EU) on Monday for encouraging passengers on flights from China to the EU to test negative for the new coronavirus.
“The current surge in COVID-19 cases in China is not expected to affect the epidemiological situation in the EU and the European Economic Area,” aviation groups such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in a joint statement. The EU’s response was inconsistent with the view of the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC).
The ECDC said last week that the vaccination rate among EU citizens is relatively high, and the possibility of being infected by a virus brought in from outside the EU is low compared to daily infections in the EU, and the current medical system can cope. He expressed his opinion.
