BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - IN a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Biden Administration has indicated that international visitors to the United States of America must be vaccinated before they could enter the country.
Reports have indicated that all travellers entering the United States must show proof of vaccination before they are allowed to board a flight.
Media reports have confirmed that the new stipulation would come into effect from Friday, November 1.
White House COVID Coordinator Jeffrey Zients made the announcement and explained that all international travellers would have to show proof of vaccination and would have taken a test at least three days before travel.
NBC News reported that those individuals must also present a negative test result, and that returning citizens who are unvaccinated must have taken a test one day before arrival and would be subjected to another test on arrival
All of this comes against the backdrop of the country reporting more than 146,000 cases on average per week. And with a further 2,000 daily deaths report, according to the United States Center for Disease Control.
