No easing of border restrictions ... Despite calls from the European Commission, Austria and the Czech Republic, Berlin said on Thursday that the border controls put in place as part of the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic, and which create long queues, will not be suspended.

"We must maintain the measures taken at the internal borders for the moment to protect health," wrote the German ambassador to the EU in a letter dated 1 March and consulted by the agency 'Reuters'.

As a reminder, Germany decided last month to put in place stricter controls along its border with the Czech Republic and Austria, two countries in the throes of an epidemic outbreak due to variants of the coronavirus.

Berlin has "gone too far"

Last week, the EU executive then urged Germany to relax the restrictions it has unilaterally imposed on the movement of goods and people. He believed that Berlin had "gone too far" and now endangered free movement in the single market.

The reinforced controls have in particular led to the formation of long lines of trucks at some of the crossing points, while Europe is struggling to adopt a common position in this area.

Belgium also refuses any relaxation

Since March 2, Germany has also restricted crossings at its border from the Moselle department, after its classification as a "variant circulation zone" of the Covid- 19 by the Robert-Koch Institute of Public Health.

Thus, any person coming from Moselle can enter German territory only with a negative test (PCR or antigen) dating back 48 hours at the most. In Germany's footsteps, Belgium has also rejected any relaxation of restrictions at its borders.
