Germany added regions from 11 European countries to the list of destinations it classifies as risk zones for contracting coronavirus, further undermining hopes of a tourism revival, as many countries are preparing for a possible second wave of the pandemic, "Reuters" this Wednesday, September 23.
In addition to Lisbon, the Robert Koch Institute included important tourist destinations on the German list, such as the French regions of Center-Val de Loire, Brittany and Normandy, as well as the coastal region Lika-Senj in Croatia and the mountainous region Primorsko- notranjska in Slovenia.
The list also includes the Irish and Danish capitals, the Dutch province of Utrecht, the Austrian state of Vorarlberg, most of the Czech Republic, the county of Gyor in West Hungary and the county of Covasna in Romania.
