Germany plans to declare Spain and the Netherlands COVID-19 high risk areas, meaning that incoming travellers who are not fully vaccinated must quarantine, the Funke group of newspapers reported on Thursday.

The plans would be announced on Friday, Funke said, citing government sources. The move will be a major blow to the Mallorcan tourist industry.
