US warns against travel to Sri Lanka

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned against travel to Sri Lanka because of the rising number of COVID-19 cases, the Reuters news agency reported today.

CDC has also warned against the travel to Jamaica and Brunei for the same reason.

The CDC also eased its ratings for the Netherlands, Malta, Guinea-Bissau and United Arab Emirates from “Level 4: Very High” to “Level 3: High.”

The CDC also raised Australia from “Leve1 1: Low” to “Level 2: Moderate.”

In addition, the CDC raised its advisory level for Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Benin, Ghana, Grenada, Turks and Caicos Islands to “Level 3.”

The CDC issues travel recommendations by countries and for US territories but does not list recommendations for individual US states. It currently lists about 80 destinations out of around 200 ranked as “Level 4,” including some US territories. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Perhaps all the paddy cultivators in parliament will learn something from this “risk assessment.” They may be able to fool the people with disinformation and muzzle the media, but, not the International community. Until satisfactory measures are put in place to mitigate COVID 19, they can forget about reviving the economy.

    • Dear Gabriella, you are pushing the western agendas in Sri Lanka.

      You do not like Sri Lanka, because Russia and China are getting closer to Sri Lanka :—)))))
