According to Reuters, the German government expects that by mid-June free movement will resume throughout the European Union. The head of the German Ministry of Internal Affairs clarified that it was only a question of the possible opening of German borders with neighboring states, in particular Luxembourg and Denmark, although there are no final agreements yet. It seems to me that this is an important topic, because many volunteers are planning summer vacations. And many expect to go to another country to see Europe. But if the borders are closed I will have to look at the strange Europe from Zuma.
As for the other neighboring countries of Germany (France, Switzerland, Austria), we agreed with them to continue mutual border restrictions until June 15. At the same time, Austrian Chancellor Kurtz has already announced his intention to open the Austrian-German border from June 15. As of May 13, in Germany more than 173 thousand people infected with coronavirus were detected, 7756 of them died, while more than 140 thousand recovered.
Opening borders is a very important moment. And as Uncle Ben said, "with great power comes great responsibility". Of course, everyone is already very tired of quarantine, and they want some fun, travel, noisy parties, live concerts, and all that. But this is a complex multifaceted question. There is no one that I want straight. Perhaps I lack faith in the miracle that it will all end. I periodically believe that all this will quickly end, but then I understand that this is not so. And sometimes I get scared. I don’t know what is going to happen so that the borders open quickly.
If I were in Russia, I would behave the same way. But now I don’t have the opportunity to take a vacation and leave, like the rest of the young volunteers on my projects, well, we are in quarantine inside another country. So to say, "Prison in prison" or "Tale in a fairy tale." I was worried that this thought occurred to me. I was so uneven that I have good emotions, then bad ones.
And if you take France, then: French Interior Minister Christoph Castaner said that the French borders would not be open until the restrictive measures introduced in the framework of the fight against coronavirus were canceled. He also noted that the issue of entry and exit from European territory will be resolved by an appropriate order. The Minister added that quarantine restrictive measures in France will be extended until July 15, which means that the borders of France itself will open no earlier than this deadline. On December 31, 2019, Chinese authorities announced an outbreak of pneumonia in Wuhan. The disease is a new type of coronavirus, officially named SARS-CoV2. March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) has announced an outbreak of the new coronavirus pandemic.
