On Sunday, Germany began implementing a mandatory coronavirus test for unvaccinated people from outside the country.
German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer told the German weekly “Bild am Sonntag” in its Sunday issue.
“Those coming into the country who are not vaccinated against Corona will have to submit to new controls.
They will be examined at airports and ports, and if the result of the analysis is positive, the person may be subjected to large fines.”
“Anyone who comes to Germany should expect to be subject to federal and local police controls,” Seehofer said.
“When entering Germany from countries outside the European Union, anyone will be examined at airports and ports, without exception,” the German Interior Minister continued.
He added, “If the result of the analysis is proof positive, the person may be placed in quarantine, and he will be subject to “severe fines” against him.
According to the same source, the imposition of obligating testing to detect corona upon entering the country would prevent the spread of the virus at the end of the summer holidays.
Under the new decision, all people from the age of 12 must be able to prove that they have a limited risk of transmitting the virus through the vaccination card.
Or by proving that he is recovering, or by a negative test result for the detection of the Coronavirus.
It is noteworthy that this order previously applied only to air travelers, and now it includes travelers of all types of transportation, even when using a car or train.
