US downgrades Covid-19 travel rating to India from high-risk to low-risk
US has eased Covid-19 travel rating for India from high-risk level to low-risk level. US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said last night that it has changed its COVID-19 travel recommendation for India to “Level 1 (Low)” from “Level 3 (High).”
In a statement, US State Department said, the risk of contracting Covid-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated with an FDA authorized vaccine. The statement said, before planning any international travel, please review the CDC’s specific recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers.
While giving key information for travellers to India, the CDC said, make sure you are vaccinated and up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines before travelling to India.
CDC uses Travel Health Notices to alert travellers and other audiences to health threats around the world and advise on how to protect themselves.
