Europeans may face serious travel restrictions over Christmas

A number of European countries have warned that it is too early to plan for Christmas travel, as coronavirus cases continue to rise across the continent.

Swedes have been told to prepare for possible travel restrictions during the holiday period, in order that regional healthcare services could avoid becoming overwhelmed.

Irish and French authorities have said it was too soon to say if people should make travel arrangements, while Portugal has expanded the scope of its night curfew. From Monday, three-quarters of the country will be under the government's toughest restrictions.
