arriving from Brazil,
due to the coronavirus
Washington, May 25 / BTA /
The White House has announced that foreigners who have visited Brazil in the past two weeks are banned from entering the United States, Reuters reported. This comes two days after the South American country became the second in the world in the number of infected with the coronavirus after the United States, the agency notes.
White House spokeswoman Kaylee McEnnany said in a statement tonight that the ban applies to foreigners who have been in Brazil for up to 14 days before traveling to the United States, but it does not affect trade flows between the two countries.
Makenani said the purpose of the new restrictions is to avoid further introduction of the infection by foreigners into the United States. She explained that with this step, President Donald Trump wants to “protect the country.”
