EU wants borders reopened

The European Union on Thursday urged all its member countries to start lifting travel restrictions on their common borders from next week, saying that the closures they introduced to tackle the coronavirus do little to limit its spread. The EU’s executive arm, the European Commission, wants Europe’s ID check-free travel area to be up and running again by the end of June.

Unveiling the executive arm’s recommendations for helping to breathe new life into Europe’s virus-ravaged tourism sector, EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson told member countries that they should open up as soon as possible, and the commission recommends to do it already on Monday.
