Germany wants mandatory tests on arrival in the country from Sunday

The DPA recalls that the obligation to test for road travel to Germany was originally intended from 11 September.

“The rule is relatively simple: everyone who arrives, whether by car, train or plane, will need a test,” said Söder.

Now this obligation only applies to people who arrive in Germany by plane. The Bavarian prime minister did not comment on whether this obligation would also apply to the vaccinated and the people who had suffered covid-19.

Earlier, however, according to the DPA, Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer (CSU) stated that whoever proves vaccination or cure from covid-19, of course, does not need any test.

According to Söder and Seehofer, inspections of certificates of infectivity on roads will be random. Söder ruled out border controls.

In the last 24 hours, Germany has reported 2,768 new cases of coronavirus infection and 21 covid-19-related deaths. The number of infected is higher than a week ago, when German authorities reported 2203 infections.

In Germany, which has a population of approximately 83 million, 3.76 million people have been infected and 91,586 have died since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. So far, 3.649 million people have been cured of the disease.

The so-called seven-day incidence, which indicates how many people became infected per 100,000 inhabitants during this period, has risen from 4.9 to 15.0 today from 6 July. On Tuesday, this indicator was at 14.5.
