"The less travel, the more we can contain the virus. Therefore ... I propose to the heads of state and government to introduce temporary restriction on non-essential travel to the EU," said European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen. "These travel restrictions should be in place for an initial period of 30 days, but can be prolonged as necessary."
