La UE cierra fronteras por crisis de coronavirus

By Jordi Bou

March 13, 2020 - La Unión Europea está prohibiendo todos los viajes no esenciales por la zona Schengen de libre paso y más allá cuando cada vez más países cierran sus fronteras en respuesta a la pandemia de coronavirus.

European Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, said that the measure would cover EU countries and non-members of the bloc that are part of the 26-country Schengen passport-free travel zone. 

EU citizens, their family members, bloc residents and workers in sectors deemed “essential” would be exempt from the measure.

The measures would be in place for at least 30 days.

Meanwhile, tough new measures in France restricting movement from the home are coming into effect on Tuesday.
