US State Department to warn citizens against travelling to 80 percent of the world

American State Department has asked its citizens to reconsider international travel for now. It has been reported that the State Department will soon provide specific warnings regarding the global COVID situation, and ask its citizens not to visit about 80 percent of the world.

The risk of getting affected by the virus is currently at an all time high, with so many different strains around the world. It is generally advisable for all citizens of all countries to think twice before international travel.

The US has not made a formal global advisory yet, but the State Department is going to use Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) standards to prepare health and safety guidelines for each country. Hence, according to the CDC’s standards, about 80 percent of the countries might fall under the do not travel list (Level 4). However, travel to the leftover 20 percent of the countries must also be reconsidered.

Names of countries have not been released by the State Department as of yet.The State Department is looking into the infection rates of other countries, alongside the resources such countries carry for testing, and treatment. The country is currently looking forward to herd immunity, as according to authorities, half of its citizens have already been vaccinated.

The US is still leading with the most number of cases, with India in second position. However, as of today, America has 2710 new cases, while India has a whooping 111967 cases. India is also ahead of the US as far as new deaths are concerned.
