December 18th, local time, due to the obvious rebound of the COVID-19 epidemic, the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the Canari region of Spain will be listed as a high-risk area for the COVID-19 epidemic again, advising residents to avoid non-essential travel to Spain.
This means that since the epidemic risk classification came into effect on December 20th local time, all of Spain has been listed as a high-risk tourist destination by the German government.
In a statement, the German Foreign Ministry said that the cumulative incidence of COVID-19 per 100,000 residents in Spain in the past week has exceeded 50, which is why Germany classifies the whole territory of Spain as a high-risk tourist destination.
Spain is one of the most important tourist destinations for German tourists. On October 24 local time, due to the improvement of the COVID-19 epidemic, the German Foreign Office removed Spain’s Canary region from high-risk tourist destinations.
