Montenegro becomes first corona-free country in Europe

On Monday, Montenegro’s prime minister declared the country coronavirus-free—a move vital for its Adriatic tourism industry. This comes 69 days after it reported its first case and 20 since a new infection, reports Reuters.
In total, Montenegro has so far reported 324 confirmed cases of COVID-19 illness and nine deaths.
Dusko Markovic, the Prime Minister told at a news conference:  
"The battle with such a vicious virus has been won and Montenegro now becomes the first coronavirus-free country in Europe."
Markovic added that Montenegro would open its borders to travellers from countries reporting no more than 25 cases of infection per 100,000 people - these include Croatia, Albania, Slovenia, Germany and Greece. 
It is interesting that Montenegro was also the last European country to confirm a COVID-19 case on March 17 as Croatia Week reported.
