The United States will continue to keep existing COVID-19 travel restrictions on International travel because of the increasing infection rate due to delta variant, as per a White House official.

President Joe Biden recently said that his organization was "all the while" thinking about how soon the U.S. could lift the restriction on European travel headed for the U.S. after German Chancellor Angela Merkel raised the issue during her visit to the White House.

The authority, who was not approved to remark freely and talked on the state of secrecy, said while the organization comprehends the significance of global travel, cases are ascending in the U.S., especially among unvaccinated individuals, and will probably keep on expanding in the weeks ahead.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encouraged Americans against movement to the United Kingdom this previous Monday, given a flood in cases.

A large portion of mainland Europe has loosened up limitations on Americans who are entirely immunized, albeit the United Kingdom requires isolates for most guests showing up from the U.S. Carriers say, in any case, that the absence of two-way travel is restricting the number of flights they can offer and seats they can sell.
