The number of Romanians abroad infected with the novel coronavirus has remained the same since the last report, which is also true for deaths, the Strategic Communication Group (GCS), the official novel coronavirus communication task force, informed on Monday. According to GCS, 3,074 Romanian citizens abroad were confirmed as infected as of June 1, and 106 as dead from the disease.
The citizens of Hungary, Bulgaria, Italy, Greece and Spain suffered biggest financial loss amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The nationals of Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland and Austria suffered least damages, a survey of the European Parliament shows. 58% of the surveyed said they experienced financial difficulties during he pandemic.
Countries around the world have used quarantine measures to prevent infected travellers spreading coronavirus within their borders.
With infection rates now falling in countries which have suffered thousands of deaths from Covid-19 many of those travel restrictions are set to be lifted, just as Britain is planning to impose its own 14-day quarantine on overseas visitors.
"We are removing the 14-day quarantine from 1st of June for the arriving Bulgarian and foreign citizens from the European Union, including Serbia and Northern Macedonia.
However, for the eight countries in Europe with the highest number of COVID-19 patients, the imposition of a 14-day quarantine will remain, explained Assoc. Prof. Angel Kunchev from the headquarters.
