On Thursday, the State Department issues the highest level travel advisory, which is a level four. It instructs Americans to stop traveling internationally and if they're abroad, they are urged to get home immediately. This is in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
This comes amid the report that 10,000 cases have been confirmed in America, and the outbreak has spread to more than 150 countries.
“The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period,” the travel advisory states.
“U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel. Many countries are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and implementing travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines, closing borders, and prohibiting non-citizens from entry with little advance notice,” it continues.
“If you choose to travel internationally, your travel plans may be severely disrupted, and you may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite timeframe," it added.
A level four travel advisory usually applies to individual countries, but Thursday’s announcement applies to all international travel.
The announcement comes as countries around the world are quickly closing their borders in an effort to stem the spread of coronavirus.
Short-notice border closures and unannounced flight cancellations have left little time for Americans to return home, leaving thousands stranded around the globe and who have pleaded with the U.S. government to evacuate them.
In Peru, over 1,400 Americans are pleading with the U.S. government to take action in bringing them back to the U.S. after the Peruvian government instituted a two-week quarantine and canceled all flights.
President Trump on Thursday said he is working to get Americans stranded in Peru out of the country by working with the military.
“They got caught, they were late with their flights, we gave them a period of time, they didn’t make it, but we’re looking to get them out probably through the military,” he said.
