The president of the European Commission has criticised EU member states for throwing up border controls to each other during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ursula von der Leyen warned of “crucial equipment stuck in bottlenecks at borders for days” following the decisions to impose movement restrictions and export controls on vital medical equipment.

 

Her call comes on the 25th anniversary of the EU’s passport less Schengen area, which was established in its current form on this day in 1995.
