Coronavirus: Speranza defends travel restrictions

Quarantine required for people coming from outside EU

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 2 - Health Minister Roberto Speranza on Thursday defended the government's decision to adopt a cautious line and maintain quarantine for people arriving from non-EU countries after the Union opened its external border to 15 States on Wednesday.
    "We hope that we can go further in a few weeks but caution is needed for now," Speranza told RAI television.
    "We have been through some difficult months.
    "We cannot remove the restrictions. It would be wrong to take risks that we cannot afford.
    "The scientific community wholeheartedly agrees with the caution and this enables us to get through the next few weeks". (ANSA).
