The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the United States has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for the Dominican Republic due to Covid-19. The US State Department upgraded the Dominican Republic from the red-colored level 4 travel advisory to the orange-colored level 3. The United States issues a travel advisory per country. While level four travel advisory is a recommendation to “don’t travel”, level three tells US travelers to “reconsider travel.”



The 4-week positivity rate in the Dominican Republic is at 10.57% and as of the data for the 18 November Covid-19 bulletin, the 7-day reported positive PCR test average is 556 cases. The rate of deaths per 1M in the country is 211 that favorably compares to 773 in the United States.

How about a travel advisory NOT to travel to the US? Chart below infections and deaths. Do say the US is number 1 in both.

Many countries have such an advisory in place. Everyone coming into the UK from the US needs to self-isolate for 14 days. And I think US arrivals are banned in a lot of European countries.
