US to need unfavorable test from worldwide tourists
Anybody taking a trip to the United States on an international flight will have to reveal proof of a negative COVID-19 test within three days before the journey, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday. The order will go into result on January 26 th.
The sweeping requirement comes a few weeks after the CDC mandated that anyone flying in from the UK need to get an unfavorable test result within the 72 hours prior to their flight. That order was based upon concerns about a more infectious coronavirus variant spreading through the UK. That version is already present in the United States.
Checking “can make travel safer, healthier, and more responsible by decreasing spread on planes, in airports, and at locations,” despite the fact that it does not eliminate all danger of COVID-19 spread, CDC Director Robert Redfield said in a statement
United States airlines argue that this type of program should change travel bans and other constraints that are now in place. People who are not citizens or permanent citizens are presently not permitted to travel into the United States if they’ve been in nations including China and the UK in the 14 days prior to their journey.
” Our company believe a well-planned program concentrated on increasing testing of travelers to the United States will further these goals in a far more effective method than the blanket travel constraints currently in place,” Nick Calio, president of Airlines for America, a trade group, said in a letter to Vice President Mike Pence earlier this month.
Checking might catch some tourists infected with the coronavirus, but it’s not a perfect system: someone might check unfavorable the day prior to a journey, and then establish symptoms or contract the virus on their way to the airport. COVID-19 is likewise currently spreading out at record levels within the US. An average of around 250,000 cases are reported every day.
