The World Health Organization (WHO) have warned nations not to be complacent in the fight against COVID-19 as another wave might take place in the event of putting the guards down early. It has been more than a year now since the pandemic began.

Amid the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 and the detection of several new variants of the virus, many countries are currently implementing travel restrictions. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Canada is currently not allowing non-essential foreign travelers despite of the pressure on the tourism sector of the country.
On another side, it has waived the quarantine requirements for the fully vaccinated citizens of Canada. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed that his country might also not accept foreign tourists who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 for some time in the pursuit to guard their gains against the pandemic.
According to the Canadian Prime Minister, the talks about the lifting of the travel restrictions are currently covering only travelers who are fully vaccinated. He also expressed that the United States do not require vaccine to its visitors.
Trudeau further expressed that the next thing they’ll be discussing are the measures for the foreign travelers who have received full dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. With this, more announcements may be made not long from now.
