Germany is under pressure from the European Commission due to its border closures. The German authorities are to explain the ban on entry for people arriving from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Austrian region of Tyrol.
In its letter from Monday, February 22, to Germany's Permanent Representative to the EU, Michael Clauss, the European Commission stressed that the measures taken by Germany are “disproportionate and groundless,” the TASR newswire reported.
“We believe that the objective Germany is rightfully following – the protection of public health during the pandemic – could be attained with less restrictive means,” the letter reads, as quoted by TASR.
