US relaxes travel advisory, but India still on no-go list
WASHINGTON: The US has lifted the highest level of its global health travel advisory for Americans due to the coronavirus pandemic and restored the previous country-specific system without changing the status of over 50 countries, including that of India and China.
The US state department had issued the Level 4: Do Not Travel advisory on March 19, urging American citizens not to travel overseas due to the pandemic.
In its latest travel advisory on India issued on Thursday, the state department said: “Do not travel to India due to Covid-19. Exercise increased caution in India due to crime and terrorism.” The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a level 3 (avoid non-essential travel) travel health notice for India, it said.
周四，美国国务院在最新发布的针对印度的旅行警告中表示:“ 由于新冠疫情，请不要前往印度。由于犯罪和恐怖主义，印度加强了警惕。” 并表示，印度疾病控制和预防中心已经发布了3级(避免非必要旅行)旅行健康通知。
Travellers to India may experience border closures, airport closures, travel prohibitions, stay at home orders, business closures and other emergency conditions within India, it said.
The CDC has similarly removed its level 3 Global Covid-19 Pandemic Notice. This important change reflects the reality that health and safety conditions are improving in some countries while potentially deteriorating in others, said assistant secretary of state for consular affairs Carl Risch.
By returning to the country-specific travel advisory system, the US is able to give Americans detailed and actionable information to make informed travel decisions, said .
“The Covid-19 pandemic poses significant risks for travellers and our destination-specific advisories take into account the latest data and public health and safety analysis on Covid-related risks,” Risch said. Other countries which have been put on the Level 4 of travel advisory include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Mexico, Egypt, and Brazil.
Although the guidance from the state department has been lifted, American travellers continue to face travel restrictions in countries worldwide due to the rising cases of the deadly disease in the United States. According to Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, the contagion has infected over 19 million people and killed more than 713,000 across the world. The US is the worst affected country with over 4.8 million cases and more than 1,60,000 deaths.
that's a slap on the face of modi by his phrend Dolan trumph
Face it. India has lot of cases of Covid. Also Indian system of governance is different from state to state and many states do not abide by central go nment advisory. It is chaotic in India. People also do not adhere to common laws and procedures.
Especially GUJURAT...filthy unhygienic...it’s a cesspit full of all types of disease
not one but 2 slaps, Soon after returning to his country after receiving great reception 'Namaste Trump' he cancelled non immigrant visas impacting mostly Indians that too during middle of the pandemic. This Dolan Dump did nothing to harm Chinese as even today almost 100 percent of the products sold in American Dollar Stores are made in China.
But Donad Trump is friend............
After "howdy Modi" and Namaste Trump", India gets this???
2nd slap India is on no go list when USA is number 1 country impacted with this pandemic.
only one reason to spread caron -19 - Namate trump
need a tight slap to come to senses.
USArelaxes travel advisory, but India still on no-go list .... After "howdy Modi"and Namaste Trump", India gets this??? what a slap to Modi from his close friend Trump . Worst PM in the indian history . Sham for him n his BJP party .
Each state comes out with it's own advisory - unable to do any business or travel between states within India.
Why blame someone else?
Modi deserves this tight slap.

Nothing wrong - it is situation and virus control which decides the decision not Relationship !
Modiji is no friend of any nations. This Chai is a total failure. How many jobs did he create in India? Mandir will not feed hungry Indians poor and unemployed.
no problem... we have some internal issues. as soon as these are sorted we will host a party for our dear friend Mr. Trump.
What's the use of that phrendseep ?
all of Trump's public outreach to Modi is proving to be a big sham.
so what is wrong in that?
THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT THEIR STATE OF AFFAIRS SO MORE DANGEROUS AND IN THIS STATE NO ONE WILL VISIT THEIR COUNTRY THEY ARE BANNED NOW IN MANY COUNTRIES.
what about US citizens returning from India? Is there any such restrictions?
