CNN: U.S. State Department Warns Americans Not to Leave Country

‘It’s an advisory, but it’s the highest level that the U.S. State Department can issue to Americans considering traveling abroad’

EXCERPT:

ATWOOD: "Yeah, this an advisory, but it is the highest level that the U.S. State Department can issue to Americans considering travel abroad. It is telling them do not travel. And to give you a little bit of context here, Jake, this is generally the level that is reserved for countries where there could be Americans that could face life -or-death situations, places like Afghanistan and Syria. So putting the world on par with those countries due to coronavirus shows you how seriously the State Department is taking the spread of coronavirus worldwide. And what they say in this travel advisory that just went out moments ago, is that any Americans who are in countries where there’s commercial travel available for them to get back to the U.S., they should go ahead and get on those flights as soon as possible.”
