Italy reopens borders to Europe without quarantine – Armenian Public Radio | Instant News


Italy reopened its borders for European travelers on Wednesday when the country tried to save the tourism industry, Euronews report.

Starting today, travelers from most other European countries will be allowed in without quarantine and people will be allowed to move freely between regions.

Three airports – Rome, Milan and Naples – will continue international arrivals, with flights scheduled to depart from Heathrow and Manchester today.

But there are fears in Italy that people might delay visits, with neighboring countries guarding travel restrictions from the country even when they open up to other European countries.

Severe national lockouts were imposed in Italy in March when the country emerged as a global hotspot for the coronavirus pandemic.

Now it faces the challenge of attracting returning visitors, because it looks to the summer holiday season as a route that allows for some sort of economic recovery. Italy currently faces the worst recession since the Second World War.

More than 33,500 people have been confirmed dead due to COVID-19 in Italy since the beginning of the outbreak, currently the third highest mortality rate in the world after Britain and the United States.
