US advises against travelling to Japan as Olympics near

The United States of America has advised its citizens not to travel to Japan. This advisory comes at a time when the Tokyo Olympics are approaching near. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Japan due to COVID-19, indicating a very high level of COVID-19 in the country 

“Because of the current situation in Japan, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants and should avoid all travel to Japan,” the CDC said. 

The State Department said its latest assessment reflected the travel health notice by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which sees Japan facing a “very high level of COVID-19.”
