The CDC sets a target of 4 out of more than 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the last 28 days.

This is a slowdown compared to the consolidation rate over the past two weeks. A week agoSweden and two other European countries were added to Level 4. And Two weeks agoSpain and seven places around the world were in Level 4.

Europe’s continuing problems

Travel conditions in Europe have improved slightly this week due to the Covit-19. CDC has only moved two places on that continent, none of which are very popular, to the lower tier (see Tier 3 below).

Some important places in Europe are now in CDC Level 4:

  • Germany
  • Spain
  • France
  • Greece
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Portugal
  • United Kingdom
  • Swiss

In fact, as of July 19, the UK is in Level 4.

However, Europe is not the only continent with Level 4 popular tourist destinations. Other places considered “high” for travel:

  • Belize
  • Jordan
  • Maldives
  • South Africa

There are eight new entries from different regions on Tuesday, in the Level 3 category, which applies to locations with 100 to 500 Govt-19 cases per 100,000 residents over the past 28 days:

  • Azerbaijan
  • Bahamas
  • Kenya
  • Moldavia
  • Mongolia
  • Romania
  • San Martin
  • Suriname

The Level 3 rank was really good news for Azerbaijan, Moldova, Mongolia and Romania, which were previously Level 4. In fact, according to the CDC, Mongolia has been there since May 19th.

This is a move in the wrong direction for the Bahamas and Sint Morton at level 2 and even lower (and safer) level 1 for Kenya.

Last week, the isolated South American country of Suriname was in the “unknown” risk category, meaning the CDC did not have enough data to create a post.

Level 2

Places labeled “Level 2: Moderate Govt-19” have recorded 50 to 99 Govt-19 cases per 100,000 residents in the last 28 days. At this point there were four new additions this Tuesday, three of them in Africa:

  • Costa Rica
  • Madagascar
  • Nigeria
  • Zambia

Costa Rica, one of the favorite Central American countries for natural beauty and fauna, has been dropped from Level 3.

This change was not in favor of Nigeria and Zambia, which were in Tier 1.

Madagascar, a large island nation off the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean, was previously classified as an “unknown” danger.

Level 1

In the “Level 1: Low Govt-19” destinations section, less than 50 new cases have been registered for every 100,000 residents in the last 28 days. At this point there are two new inputs:

Niger, a landlocked country in West Africa, is famous for its historic Sahara caravans. He was up to level 4.

The Philippines, with its beaches, known for its gastronomy and friendly people, dropped out of Level 2.

Unknown danger

Finally, there are places like the ones mentioned above, which maintain a “unknown” risk level due to the lack of CDC information. These are common, but not always, small and remote places.

But on Tuesday, the CDC added modern city-status SingaporeAn exciting international crossing. Previously it was at risk level 4.

The CDC warns that even fully vaccinated passengers should not go to destinations without reliable statistics on the current Govt-19 scenario.
