Coronavirus: Europe plans full border closure in virus battle – BBC News


The European Commission is planning to ban all non-essential travel throughout Europe’s Schengen free-travel zone as more countries close their borders to try to limit the spread of coronavirus.

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said she would ask leaders to implement the measures on Tuesday.

“The less travel, the more we can contain the virus,” she said.

Meanwhile, tough new measures in France restricting movement from the home are coming into effect on Tuesday.
