MILAN (Reuters) - Italy will make testing for COVID-19 compulsory for people traveling from the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Belgium and the Czech Republic, Health Minister Roberto Speranza said on Wednesday, following growing concerns about rising cases across Europe.
“Infection data are growing across all of Europe and in Italy too”, Speranza wrote on Facebook.
“I’ve signed an order which makes coronavirus testing compulsory for travellers from Belgium, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Czech Republic”, he said.
