Peruvian Ambassador to South Africa: “the citizens of South Africa have a right to be informed of the agreement reached within the Integrated Political Crisis Response Facility (IPCR).
The Presidency of the Council has informed in a message on social networks of the agreement reached within the Integrated Political Response to Crises (IPCR) and has also asked the EU-27 to require testing and quarantine of passengers coming from these areas.
The decision coincided on Friday with the first confirmed case in Europe of a patient infected with the new variant ‘Nu’. It is a Belgian woman with symptoms of coronavirus who returned from a trip to Egypt 15 days ago.

Brussels took the initiative in response to the request of several Member States to take the step in this direction and the issue has received the support of the other partners at a meeting held in the EU capital in the framework of the IPCR at technical and ambassadorial level.
