White House Speaks on Travel Restrictions in U.S. Amid Increasing Delta Cases

White House released a statement over the travel restrictions in the United States amid the rise in the cases of the Delta variant of COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken several healthcare systems in the different nations. Unfortunately, some healthcare system even collapsed like what happened in India when the cases increased due to the Delta variant.

The Delta variant which was first recorded in India is currently considered as the variant of concern. During the spike of the cases, hospitals reached their full capacities and they were no longer able to accommodate all of the patients. They ran out of resources and many people died of COVID-19.

Currently, several countries across the globe are implementing travel restrictions in the pursuit to prevent the entry and spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19. One of these nations is the United States.

White House recently gave its decision on the existing travel restrictions in the United States now amid the increase in the Delta cases of COVID-19. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, U.S. decides not to lift the travel bans they are currently implementing.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki cited the presence of the threats of the Delta variant. According to her, cases usually got unvaccinated individuals and it “appear likely to continue to increase in the weeks ahead”.

Based on the report, the United States is currently not allowing non-U.S. citizens who have travel history to United Kingdom 14 days before their arrival to U.S. They are currently closing their borders to travelers from the 26 Schengen nations in Europe without internal border controls or in Brazil, China, India, Iran, Ireland, and Africa.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic now, the airline industry is one of those greatly affected because of the travel restrictions. Vaccinations against coronavirus are currently ongoing.
