US State Department warns Americans not to travel to Croatia

Written by  Nov 23, 2021

The US State Department warned on Monday not to travel to Germany due to the current accelerated spread of coronavirus in that country, and Croatia is also on the list of high-risk countries.

The State Department’s Level 4 warning against travel to Germany is linked to the latest assessment of the situation by the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“Avoid traveling to Germany. If you have to go there, make sure you are fully vaccinated before the trip,” warns the CDC.

"Due to the current situation in Germany, even fully vaccinated people may be at risk of getting wider variants of Covid-19," adds the CDC.

Germany is facing an increase in the number of infected and medical experts and Chancellor Angela Merkel have warned that hospitals are already struggling in some regions.

The number of new cases of infection in the country is doubling every 12 days.

Germany and Denmark are among the countries for which a level 4 warning has been issued, the highest level of the CDC scale.

The Level 4 warning also applies to other countries in Europe currently severely affected by the pandemic, including Belgium, Croatia, Hungary, Austria and the Netherlands.

For France and Italy, Level 3 applies, under which passengers are invited to consider their travel plans.

Prior to the pandemic, the highest level of warning was largely reserved for countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq, where crises and conflicts persist.
