On Monday, the United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has listed Singapore as “very high” in their list of risk travel destinations. As per the CDC, Singapore rose from Level 3 to its highest risk Level 4 under its Travel Notices.
The notice cited: “Level 4: Very High Level of Covid-19 in Singapore”, which was followed by advice to “avoid travel to Singapore” for the US residents. The CDC said, “because of the current situation in Singapore, even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading Covid-19 variants”. The notice asked the travelers to follow recommendations or requirements in Singapore while traveling and wear a mask along with staying six feet apart from others.
Singapore has reported 2,553 new cases on Monday of Covid-19 infections. It included 2,008 new cases in the community, 544 in migrant worker dormitories, and one imported case. Recently, the nation has announced the expansion of a quarantine-free travel scheme for fully vaccinated travelers.
