Public health officials are giving revised Travel advice for more than 120 nations as more individuals get vaccinated, and the spread of Covid-19 is better controlled. On Monday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) amended its overseas Travel advice to include specific recommendations for both vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors. The update consists of 33 countries in the lowest risk category, including Iceland, Israel, and Singapore.
The CDC’s new Covid-19 Travel Health Notice guidelines aim to better distinguish countries with significant outbreaks from those where Covid-19 is present but under control. The number of Covid-19 cases in a given nation determines the CDC’s threat ratings. The CDC advises being vaccinated at every level, but its advice for unvaccinated persons changes according to how severe the pandemic is in each country.
Currently, these countries are reporting 100 to 500 incidents per 100,000 people. Unvaccinated tourists at high risk of severe disease from Covid-19 should avoid Travel, according to the agency’s level 2 recommendation. For example, Finland, Cambodia, and Kenya are currently reporting 50-99 instances per 100,000.
Finally, category one countries like Australia and New Zealand are the lowest-risk destinations, with fewer than 50 Covid-19 instances reported in the last 28 days. Getting vaccinated before Travel to a low-risk zone is still recommended by the CDC.
