US issues 'Level One' safe travel advisory for India

The top US health body has issued a "Level One" COVID-19 notice for Americans travelling to India, saying the risk of contracting the infection and developing severe symptoms may be lower if one is fully vaccinated.

According to Indian media reports, the new travel advisory issued on November 15 by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of "Level One", which is considered safe, came in the wake of the significant improvement in the Covid-19 situation in India.

The CDC, in its health travel notice "Level One," said, "Your risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated with an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) authorised vaccine."

Make sure you are fully vaccinated before travelling to India. The health notice said that travellers should follow recommendations or requirements in India, including wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart from others.

India on November 15 recorded the lowest daily COVID-19 cases in the country in 287 days.
