Covid-19: US eases travel advisory for India
The US CDC has indicated a moderate level of COVID-19 in the country
The United States eased its travel advisory for India on Monday, lowering it to Level 2: Moderate. The new travel advisory of Level 2, which is considered as safe, came in the wake of the significant improvement in the Covid-19 situation in India.
India has meanwhile reported its lowest daily new cases (25,166) in 154 days on Tuesday. With sustained efforts from the central and the state governments, the country has managed to report less than 50,000 daily active cases for 50 consecutive days.
Early this year, when India was going through the second wave of the pandemic, the US had put India in Level 4, asking its citizens not to travel to India.
The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has now issued a Level 2 Travel Health Notice for India due to COVID-19, indicating a moderate level of COVID-19 in the country.
“Your risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated with an FDA authorised vaccine. Before planning any international travel, please review the CDC’s specific recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers," the US State Department said in a statement.
