Latest from Asia and EU Green List update delayed

Released 22.7.2020

The publication of an European Union “green list” of countries from which people will not have to self-isolate when returning is to be delayed. The Cabinet meeting on Monday (today) had been cancelled, which will push back the publication of the “green list” of countries. The list will be made up of countries with a low incidence of Covid-19 deemed safe to travel to, with health officials monitoring data from shortlisted countries to watch for spikes in coronavirus infections.

We estimate that the EU will raise the so-called To the Green List from Asia as follows: Bhutan, Brunei, Hong Kong (China), Jordan, and Macao (China). We would also not be surprised if the following countries were added to the list: Indonesia, Lebanon, Mongolia, Nepal, and Taiwan. These countries are fairly close to or below the limits set by the EU, but testing is limited.
