There continues to be more coronasmittede in Spain, and it may mean that the Danish authorities will soon begin to advise against unnecessary travel to the country - for example package holidays.
The Danish authorities have a criterion, that must be under 30 new smittetilfælde per week per 100,000 population to be the green light to travel.
The past two weeks, Spain has on average been eur 30.1 new smittetilfælde a week.
It shows figures from The European Centre for disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), which runs until Saturday. This figure has been increasing over the past weeks.
the Ministry of foreign affairs publishes every Thursday at 16 updated travel advice. The image can thus reach to change in the coming days.
in addition to the number of infected looking to the Danish authorities, also at the test level, and how big a percentage of the tested, which is positive. A maximum of five percent of the tested do test positive.
It is in particular the regions of Catalonia, Aragón and Navarra in the north of Spain, which in the past has had many new smittetilfælde.
currently recommends the Danish authorities, that you are tested for corona virus, if you return home from one of the three regions.
At the end of July selected Uk and Norway to advise against all unnecessary travel to Spain.
Several experts, and the Danish leisure travel has argued that the Ministry of foreign affairs should consider regional travel advice, as a local smitteudbrud does not close for travel to an entire country.
the Ministry of foreign affairs, on the other hand, stated that it is cumbersome and heavy to go with the solution, and that there is good enough data in all EU-countries for it.
Regardless of the believe Lars Thykier, managing director of the Danish Travel agency Association that the Danish authorities should seek to work with the regional travel advice.
- Some countries are larger than others, and Denmark is not a very large country.
Spain is more than ten times as large as Denmark, and has two archipelagos, which are not connected with the rest of the country.
- So you need to have a more geographically-related assessment and not just say that a country is a country, says Lars Thykier.
He suggests that the Danish authorities make regional travel advice for the countries where it currently makes sense - for example with Spain, where just now are many danes who travel to over the summer.
this week was opened for travel to the whole of Sweden and Portugal, while no longer recommended travel to Romania due to increasing infection.
advice to travelers are only recommendations. It is therefore not illegal, if you do not follow them.
