The Trump administration said it is suspending entry to the US by anyone who has been in the coronavirus-stricken country in the past 14 days.
“The potential for undetected transmission of the virus by infected individuals seeking to enter the United States from the Federative Republic of Brazil threatens the security of our transportation system and infrastructure and the national security,” President Trump said in a proclamation.
“I have determined that it is in the interests of the United States to take action to restrict and suspend the entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of all aliens who were physically present within the Federative Republic of Brazil during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.”
After originating in China and traveling abroad to ravage nations including Italy, Spain and the US, the coronavirus has gained a toehold in Brazil to terrifying effect.
As of Sunday afternoon, Brazil had seen 347,398 confirmed cases of the disease according to Johns Hopkins University, the most reported in any nation in the world other than the US.
