If you were planning to travel somewhere this summer, you should first take into account what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has to say. The government agency raises awareness for travelling to destinations that carry the “Level 4: Covid-19 very high” notice. The CDC says you should avoid going there or at least get vaccinated first, as an article from CNN reveals.
The four destinations that are found marked by the “Level 4: Covid-19 very high” notice are the following:
But surely you’re asking yourself what exactly does a “very high” risk mean in this case? Everybody has his own definition for such a term, but don’t worry, the CDC has it covered once more.
Over 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants for the last 28 days
The destinations from the “Level 4” category had been dealing with over 500 COVID cases per 100,000 residents for the last 28 days.
The CDC insists that anyone who wants to embark on a journey should get vaccinated for the coronavirus. One of the agency’s statements says, as quoted by CNN:
Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread Covid-19. However, international travel poses additional risks, and even fully vaccinated travelers might be at increased risk for getting and possibly spreading some Covid-19 variants.
According to Our World in Data, 31.4% of the planet’s population has been vaccinated for COVID with at least the first dose. Also, 23.6% of the world is fully vaccinated. Globally, 4.72 billion vaccine doses were administered and a number of 35.64 million are administered every day, according to the same source.
