Rome, July 9 (RHC)-- Italy has called for new precautionary measures for passengers travelling to European Union countries from outside the bloc to contain the spread of the new coronavirus.

Italy has suspended all flights from Bangladesh for one week due to a "significant number" of passengers who tested positive to COVID-19 on a flight to Rome earlier this week.

"I would consider it appropriate to outline together new rigorous precautionary measures for arrivals from non-Schengen and non-EU areas," Health Minister Roberto Speranza said in a letter addressed to the EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides and Germany's Health Minister Jens Spahn.
