Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “State Department will issue 'Level 4' advisory for 80% of countries”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The U.S. Department of State announced on Monday it will issue a 'Level 4: Do Not Travel' advisory, its highest warning, for about 80 percent of countries.

In an official statement, the agency said the risk of COVID-19 while traveling remains too high and urged Americans to 'reconsider all travel abroad.' 

'This does not imply a reassessment of the current health situation in a given country, but rather reflects an adjustment in the State Department's Travel Advisory system to rely more on CDC's existing epidemiological assessments,' the statement read.

Level 4 is generally reserved for war-torn countries or nations that would be hostile to Americans such as Afghanistan and North Korea.  

Most countries are currently listed on the State Department website with a 'Level 3 - Reconsider Travel' warning, the second-highest alert.
