(ANSA) — The United States will not rescind any travel restrictions in effect “at this time” due to concerns about the increased number of Covid-19 cases and the contagious delta variant.

The announcement was made on Monday (26th) by a White House official, citing the agency Bloomberg, after a high-level meeting.

The Joe Biden administration is under pressure from foreign governments, airlines and some members of Congress to loosen restrictions on foreign nationals entering the country. However, the Democratic administration has repeatedly stated that the relaxation of measures will be decided only on the basis of epidemiological data.
