US to stop COVID-19 test for international travelers
The United States has moved to stop proof of negative Covid-19 test as requirement for international travelers to enter the country.
This is according to a senior administration official and a US Centers For Disease Control and Prevention official.
The official stated the “tremendous progress” the country had made in the fight against coronavirus as reason for the move.
Once it comes into effect on Sunday, June 12, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will re-evaluate the policy in 90 days.
A senior official revealed, “We are able to take this step because of the tremendous progress we’ve made in our fight against the virus.
“We have made lifesaving vaccines and treatments widely available and these tools are working to prevent serious illness and death, and are effective against the prevalent variants circulating in the US and around the world.”
