Three countries were added to Estonia's quarantine list on Friday after their rate of coronavirus infection rose to over 15 new infections per 100,000 people.

Poland, Bulgaria and Romania were added to the list, joining the U.K., Sweden, and Portugal, data from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs shows.

Previously travelers from Poland, Bulgaria and Romania were allowed to enter Estonia without quarantining as each country's infection rate were below 15 new infections per 100,000.
