President Donald Trump has announced new travel restrictions for the U.S. in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
The Trump administration has also issued a travel advisory for people from Canada, Mexico and South America.
The new travel ban will apply to travellers from six nations including Canada, South Korea, Mexico, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic.
The travel ban, which is part of a broader strategy to reduce travel to North Korea, South Sudan, Syria, Iran and Iraq, includes a ban on foreign students studying in U.N. schools.
The move comes a day after Trump announced a ban of foreign visitors to the U, U.K., France and Germany, which he said would stop the spread and spread of coronaviruses.
Embassy in London said Monday that it had received a “credible threat” that U.k. citizens traveling to the United States from the six countries will be prevented from entering the U and the U of A.U. travel advisory says visitors from six Muslim-majority countries will not be able to enter the United Kingdom, unless they are issued with a “conditional visa.”
U.S.-born Briton Andrew Gilligan said he has been forced to cancel his scheduled visit to the country after his mother and brother were barred from entering after they failed a medical check.
He told The Associated Press that he has now cancelled a planned trip to Germany and Brazil.
The United Kingdom and Brazil said they would review their travel arrangements and could take further steps as soon as Monday.
The U.A.E. announced that it would also restrict its citizens from the U on Monday.
The announcement comes as the Trump administration’s health agency said that more than 11 million Americans are infected with the virus and that nearly one-third of them are adults.
More than 100 Americans have died and another 200 have died of the virus in the United Stations in the Us., according to the World Health Organization.
