Germany declares Dublin a Covid-19 risk area because of high number of cases in capital

Germany has declared Dublin a Covid-19 risk area, requiring anyone arriving from the Irish capital to take a free Covid-19 test.

Berlin defines a risk area as anywhere with a new infection rate above 50 per 100,000 of population in the last seven days. Officials at the foreign and interior ministries also include in their final decision other qualitative criteria, such as local testing regimes.

Based on official Irish figures, Dublin has an infection rate of 71.69 per 100,000 of population over the last seven days.

Other areas declared risk areas included Brittany and Normandy in France, the Utrecht province of the Netherlands, the greater Lisbon area and almost all of the Czech Republic.

Countries on the risk-list since June include the US, Russia and most African countries.
