The European Union adopted on Tuesday a "traffic light" system to guide member states whether to require Covid-19 testing or quarantines for non-essential EU travellers such as tourists. The recommendation aims to end a confusing patchwork of restrictions and to restore free movement.

They include most of eastern Germany, parts of the Nordic and Baltic countries, some areas of Bulgaria and Greece. FRANCE 24's Nick Spicer tells us more about the situation in Germany.
