US to suspend all travel from Europe for 30 days to fight COVID-19 outbreak

WASHINGTON: The US will suspend all travel from Europe to the country for 30 days in an effort to curb the COVID-19 outbreak, said President Donald Trump on Wednesday night (Mar 11).

The travel restriction will not apply to the United Kingdom, he said in a televised address.

“To keep new cases from entering our shores, we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days. The new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight,” said Trump.Advertisement

He said Europe saw more cases because governments failed to stop travel from China, where the COVID-19 epidemic began.

“The European Union failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hot spots. As a result, a large number of new clusters in the United States were seeded by travellers from Europe,” said the president.
