The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is once again warning against travel to certain European countries, labeling them as “Covid-19 Very High” in the Level 4 category. The State Department of the US is also backing up the idea, and the news is brought by The Hill.

The reported COVID infections are rising in Germany and Denmark, meaning that these countries had more than 500 COVID cases per 100,000 individuals for each of the last 28 days. That was enough for the CDC to warn against traveling to these European countries and place them on the long list of “Covid-19 Very High” area.

Vaccination is also encouraged

The CDC’s website is very clear regarding the list of countries from the “Level 4: Covid 19 Very High” area:

Avoid travel to these destinations. If you must travel to these destinations, make sure you are fully vaccinated before travel.

The situation looks very bad in Germany, and there’s no wonder why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) decided to mark the country with the Level 4 risk level. Germany has reported an increase of 50% in new COVID infections only for the past week. The New York Times even says that Germany deals with a daily case average of over 49,000.

As for last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its list of Level 4: COVID-19 Very High with the following countries: Iceland, Czech Republic, Hungary, and the island of Guernsey.

For months, the US had imposed travel restrictions due to worries about infection with COVID. But the country reopened its borders for international travelers, although they still have to comply with some rules. They must get vaccinated and take a COVID test that turns out negative in less than three days before their trip.
