Covid Concern: US advises its citizens to avoid traveling to France

The United States Department has advised Americans to refrain from all travel to France because of the growing number of covid infections in that country. France is fighting a 4th wave of the coronavirus even though hospitalizations due to Covid-19 are still far below earlier peaks.

The US State Department has issued a "Level 4: travel ban" recommendation for France, based on a parallel warning from the CDC, the country's leading medical body. "If you have to travel to France, make sure you are fully vaccinated before traveling," the CDC said.

Meanwhile, France recorded a total of more than 6 million infected and 1,11,000 dead in the pandemic, and the daily number of infected returned to the figure of about 20,000, while the number of dead remains low compared to the peak of the pandemic.  As per Health department data, a total of 74 million doses of the vaccine were injected in France, the WHO said, and more than 55 percent of the population received both doses of the vaccine, News agencies reported.
