The 5 European destinations you can travel to now…

Europe

With lock-down easing it is hard to not want to get out and travel. The summer is just beginning and the climates are now warmer. For those looking and thinking about travel outside their country here are the 5 European countries which may be more likely to allow travel from abroad this summer:

  1. Italy – Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced its borders to countries within the European Union from June 3 and will keep a close eye on its rate and if it increases again. 
  2. Greece – This country has had a very low coronavirus rate due to immediate lock-down so international flights will resume from July 1. 
  3. Iceland – From June 15th restrictions will be eased and tests may be required instead of the 14 day quarantine rule.
  4. Portugal – Again another country that wants to let tourists in and the 14 day quaratine restriction will not apply here.
  5. Sweden – This country has not even been in a full lock-down mode compared to other countries and will accept European Union visitors plus UK, Norway and Switzerland

  • During attacks patients are often restless, agitated, or both
  • Attacks typically last for 15 to 180 minutes untreated and have a frequency of 1 every other day for up to 8 attacks a day
  • Using inhaled high-flow oxygen is more likely to result in being pain-free after 15 minutes
  • Oxygen therapy can be administered at different flow rates
  • High flow oxygen is very effective in some patients in relieving symptoms of an acute cluster headache quickly and safely
  • Cluster headache bouts alternate with remission periods, when patients are pain free
  • In the majority of these patients, the headaches occur in clusters (bouts) with daily attacks for several weeks
  • Oxygen is one of the safest ways to treat cluster headache
