EC president: ‘Don’t book summer holiday yet’

The president of the European Commission has warned people to wait before making summer holiday plans.
Ursula von der Leyen said people should not make any travel plans to the continent for the foreseeable future.
She told German newspaper Bild: “I’d advise everyone to wait before making holiday plans.
“At the moment, no one can make reliable forecasts for July and August.
“We will need to learn to live with this virus for many months, probably until next year.”
Her comments come as France said it would maintain strict border controls until October and asked other EU countries to keep their borders closed until at least September.
The UK government is currently warning against all non-essential global travel and most flights are grounded.
