The German health minister has announced that the government will suspend a pandemic regulation demanding people to produce evidence of vaccination, a negative COVID-19 test result, or a recent recovery from COVID-19 to enter the country in the summer.
The German health minister, Karl Lauterbach, told the Funke newspaper group that the restriction, which applies to everyone age 12 and above traveling from anywhere in the world, will be suspended from June 1 through August 31.
Since early March, Germany has not placed any nation or territory on its “high-risk areas” for coronavirus list.
The number of confirmed coronavirus infections has dropped dramatically in Germany in recent weeks, and the majority of regulations have been relaxed.
However, the French authorities recently announced intentions to invest an additional 830 million euros ($889 million) in vaccine purchases to aid in preparation against a range of potential variants in the fall.
