"Two officials within the European Union institutions have confirmed for Reuters that the EU Council will on Monday announce its decision to remove from the list of epidemiologically safe third countries a total of six countries, including the United States.

The removal from the list means that the Member States are advised to reimpose the entry ban on travellers from these countries so that the same are no longer eligible to enter restriction-free for non-essential purposes like tourism and business.

The complete list of the countries affected goes as follows:

Israel
Kosovo
Lebanon
Montenegro
North Macedonia
United States

All six have recently reported an increasing number of Coronavirus cases detected within their territory.

4. Reconsidering, it's really only been a couple of months.

Delta has been blowing up.

I guess a pre-emptive ban would be unseemly. Benefit of a doubt and so forth.

However, those of us on the street could see this coming a mile away.

7. All countries should adopt Taiwan's measures

Chen also announced that starting from midnight on Friday, international travelers who arrive in Taiwan would be required to take a disease prevention vehicle to a quarantine facility, and that driving by themselves would no longer be allowed.

“The new restriction is to prevent arriving travelers from staying in their own vehicle or outside for too long,” he said.

Arrivals should be quarantined as soon as possible to reduce the risk of them having contact with other people during their trip from the airport to a quarantine facility, he added.


A mandatory 14-day quarantine for all arriving travelers remains in place, and so far it has not affected Taiwan’s economy, which has performed well in the past two years, he said.

Tight border controls, along with contact tracing and other measures to bring COVID-19 under control, have increased domestic demand, perking up the local economy, as they have allowed the public to live a relatively normal daily life, Chen said, adding that exports have continued to grow.
