Current information about Covid and traveling to the United States

Increase in infections in the U.S. by Covid

Currently the number of new cases in the US has recently risen 70%, raising the daily average from about 16,000 positives to more than 26,000.

The Joe Biden Administration has decided to keep existing restrictions in place for those who want to travel to the United States amid the increase in cases due to covid-19 due to the Delta variant.

“At least for the moment,” the news agency cites a White House source, it will continue to be prohibited to enter the US for those who are not US citizens and have spent the last 14 days in one of the 26 countries of the European Union that belong to the Schengen area, Ireland, United Kingdom, China, India, South Africa, Iran or Brazil.

The United States maintains travel restrictions to enter the country due to the increase in cases of covid-19

It is sad news, but the situation has pushed the Biden government to maintain security measures, at least for the moment.

The authorities have offered everything possible to encourage those who are reluctant and suspicious of the vaccine not to stagnate the country any more, from raffles of a million dollars and university scholarships to beers, donuts and marijuana as gifts. The number of new cases climbed 70% in July in a matter of a week, raising the daily average from 15,500 to 26,300 positives. Meanwhile, less than half of the citizens have the complete inoculation.
