State Department Lifts Advisory Against Global Travel

The State Department on Thursday lifted its advisory against traveling abroad, more than four months after urging U.S. citizens to avoid leaving the country amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The department initially issued the global level 4 advisory – the highest level of travel advisory — on March 19, as the pandemic began tightening its grip on the nation, CNN reported.

Despite the advisory, the U.S. quickly became the global epicenter for the contagion, surpassing early hot spots such as Italy and France in both reported cases and deaths.

Subsequently, many countries have banned travel from the U.S., which currently has a quarter of the world’s reported cases.

As of Thursday, the U.S. has roughly 4.9 million coronavirus cases, including nearly 160,000 deaths — easily the most globally for both.
