BERLIN, May 25 (Reuters) – The German Ministry of Health will ease COVID-19 entry rules for travelers from June 1 and suspend a claim for vaccination, cure from the virus or a negative test, the Funke media group reported Wednesday, citing the health minister.

“We will suspend the 3G entry rule until the end of August,” Health Minister Karl Lauterbach was quoted as saying.

The new rules are still to be adopted by the government on Wednesday and will recognize all COVID-19 vaccines approved by the World Health Organization, even if they are not approved by the EU, Funke reported.

Germany’s coronavirus infections have dropped. The Robert Koch Institute registered 64,437 new infections on Tuesday, which is 21,815 lower than a week ago.
