CDC urges Americans to avoid travelling to Russia, Belgium, Slovakia and Burkina Faso

Published on : Wednesday, November 3, 2021

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urged all Americans to avoid travelling to a new batch of countries, including Russia and Belgium, because of high levels of COVID-19.

Slovakia and Burkina Faso joined the public health agency’s running list of destinations U.S. travellers are discouraged from visiting amid the pandemic.

According to the CDC said that even fully vaccinated travellers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants.

Russia had the third-highest number of corona-viruses cases in the world over the past 28 days – more than 917,300 cases, according to John Hopkins data.

The U.K., which the CDC previously discouraged visiting, had the second-highest cases, and the USA had the most, with more than 2.2 million cases over the same period.

The CDC said people who must visit countries with high case counts of COVID-19 should be fully vaccinated and those who are not should not travel internationally.

Starting next Monday, unvaccinated Americans will face tighter restrictions traveling internationally. They’ll need to provide negative results from a coronavirus test taken within one day of departure instead of three days.

The change is part of a travel system beginning Nov. 8, which will reopen U.S. borders for vaccinated tourists, with few exceptions.
