Covid: Red light for Bulgaria?

The Ministry of Health keeps watching closely the situation in other European countries as numbers of cases especially in the east have been rising. Travel restrictions have already been in place for Serbia and Montenegro. People now must go into two-week quarantine or prove themselves with a negative test after returning to the Czech Republic. Same measures are in place for visitors of Sweden.

Minister of Health Adam Vojtěch (ANO) claimed that the Ministry would monitor the situation in countries like Bulgaria this week to decide whether to remove them from the "green-light" places.

However, the number of Czech citizens infected abroad is still very low. In total nine people have been infected on their holidays in past few weeks, three of them in Slovakia, others in Sweden, Croatia, Great Britain, Hungary and Serbia.
