State Department tells Americans not to travel abroad

The State Department told Americans not to travel abroad at all, the strongest U.S. alert yet as the novel coronavirus continued its steady march across the globe.

The department on Thursday issued a Level 4 advisory for travel abroad – “do not travel” – only four days after it issued a Level 3 advisory that urged Americans to “reconsider travel.” 

“In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period,” the advisory said.  “U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel.”

The advisory came as the number of cases have multiplied: More than 11,000 in the United States out of 236,000 worldwide. The global death toll also neared 10,000 on Thursday, including 157 in the United States.
