Contrary to what was expected, the decision did not include member states of the European Union, although many of these countries reported a significant increase in the number of Coronavirus infections.

The “National News Network” website stated that those coming to Ireland from these additional countries must book in advance at a quarantined hotel as of April 6. Arrivals must spend 14 days in their hotel rooms or they will be able to leave after 10 days if the test results show that they do not carry the virus.

The new list brings the number of countries whose citizens are asked to stone to 58 countries, most of them in the Middle East, Africa, Central America, and South America.

The site notes that Ireland is one of the countries of the European Union that applies the most stringent restrictions on arrivals from countries considered high risk.

The number of confirmed infections in the country with a population of about 5 million has reached more than 236,000, while the number of deaths has reached more than 4,700 cases.
