New alert to the Spanish tourism sector and this time from Germany, one of its main emitting countries and in which the hopes have been put to save as much as possible after France recommended on Thursday to its citizens who will not travel to Spain. The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, following the Protocol established by the Robert Koch Institute, which is responsible for the monitoring of infections and pandemics in this country, has put together Spain, including the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla, in The relationship of Risk Regions by Covid before the important increase in cases recorded throughout the country. The measure will come into force on Sunday. The declaration of & amp; quot; risk area & amp; quot; It is the least of the warning levels set by the epidemiological authorities and, unlike the qualifications of & amp; quot; risk by high incidence & amp; quot; Y & AMP; quot; risk by dangerous variant & amp; - - It does not have direct repercussions for German tourists who are in Spain or plan to travel to Spain in the coming days. Thus, anyone who returns to Germany from Spain, as before being declared a risk zone, carrying a coronavirus proof with a negative result, a certificate of complete vaccination or recovery of the COVID-19. The inclusion of Spain between risk areas does not alter existing conditions, but it has dissuasive potential. One of the key criteria for Germany to declare a region risk is that the accumulated incidence in seven days exceeds 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. Up to now, Andalusia, Catalonia, Cantabria, Navarra, La Rioja, Euskadi and Ceuta were considered. Balearic and Canary Islands, the two main destinations of German tourists, were not considered risk areas. Mallorca was eliminated from the list of risk areas in mid-March. Meanwhile, the average incidence in the Balearic Islands exceeds 141 new cases accumulated in a week per 100,000 inhabitants. The incidence in the whole of Spain is 179, an extremely worrying ratio for the tourism industry because at the time it exceeds 200 cases, the country will be declared a high incidence area. This implies mandatory quarantine for those who have not completed the vaccination pattern or have overcome the disease. The surveillance that the different governments of the pandemic are extreme and, in the case of Germany, the update of the world epidemiological map is carried out every seven days. For the travel sector, that wants a summer under the sword of Damocles. Cyprus, another of the favorite destinations of the Germans is an example. In just one week, the island became a risk area to a high incidence area, section where Portugal, Great Britain and Russia are also found. France requests to avoid Spain other countries have also alerted the situation of incidence in the country. Specifically, the French Government has asked & amp; avoid Spain & amp; quot; as a holiday destination. & amp; quot; better go by France or to another country than to Spain or Portugal & AMP; Quot; said Clément Beaune, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. Although he rated the words of him as & amp; quot; prudence tips & amp; quot; He was concerned about the expansion of the Delta variant in Portugal and Spain, specifically in Catalonia. Italy evaluates hardening restrictions on Spanish and Portuguese travelers in accordance with information advanced by the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, the increase in contagions in Spain and Portugal concerns Gianni Rezza, the Head of Prevention of the Ministry of Health. & amp; quot; It is being evaluated to undertake stricter measures to passengers who come from Spain and Portugal & AMP; Quot; He declared at a press conference. At the moment, there is no decision taken.
