Tourism: The EU’s “black list” of airports – The 34 high-risk transmission countries, the Greek deterrence plan

The processes for the resumption of tourism and flights within the EU and beyond are gradually culminating .

The Greek plan for tourism – the Ministry of Tourism yesterday released the health protocols – does not provide for tests for visitors. Nevertheless, the country will not remain unfortified, as provided for in the plan of the General Secretariat for Civil Protection for flights and tourism.

In particular, special manuals have been prepared for the classification of areas based on cases and victims and this data will be placed on a map in the operations center of the General Secretariat for Civil Protection, in which countries will be labeled ” red “, ” orange “. ” Green ” and ” yellow “, depending on the epidemiological data.

Tourism: The EU’s “black list” of airports
On Friday, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), an official EU body, released the “blacklist” of airports located in 34 countries with high levels of corona transmission .

The list, which will be updated frequently and will be a guide to flights and tourism, was created based on the scientific data of WHO, ECDC and other health institutes.

As far as European countries are concerned, the EASA list includes the following in the “black list”:

Belgium
France
Germany
Italy
Netherlands
Poland
Portugal
Spain
Sweden
United Kingdom
See in detail the table with the cities / airports that EASA considers as dangerous starting points:



Tourism: Dangerous countries outside the EU
The EASA report on flights has a separate section for non-EU countries. The “black list” for third countries includes the following:

Brazil
Dominican Republic,
USA

      Whilst we also understand the frustration potentially caused by the origin of this virus and subsequent misinformation from China, the decision is purely based on present epidemiological (case rate) information.

        Problem is that China is lying about the epidemiological information too unless one really believes the official death toll numbers that are 30-40 times less than one would expect considering the size of the population and how it handled the situation. Looks like lying about the scale of the problem really pays off for China with western MSM mindlessly parroting the official data but one believes anything the CCP says at one’s own risk!

            Unlikely, this list as the footnote in the article says is incomplete at present.

      No – they are more successfully dealing with virus spread and infection rates. This is the basis of the respective lists.
