At 12 o'clock today Denmark closed its borders to travellers from Sweden in order to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.

Swedish citizens planning to fly from Copenhagen's airport Kastrup will not be allowed in and trains will not be allowed to cross the bridge between the two countries. Swedes landing at Kastrup will be allowed through to return to Sweden.

Roadblocks have been set up on the bridge and Danish police are checking the occupants of any vehicles to make sure only Danish citizens proceed across the bridge.
