The EU will ban all non-essential travel into Europe for 30 days to slow the spread of coronavirus
The European Union will impose a temporary ban on all non-essential travel into the bloc, European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen announced on Monday.
Only essential travel to the EU for people from third countries will be allowed for a period lasting at least 30 days.
"The less travel, the more we can contain the virus," Von Der Leyen said.
"Therefore I propose to the heads of state and government to introduce temporary restriction on non-essential travel to the EU."
