About a week ago, Singapore was classified by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as ‘unknown’ with regards to its travel advisory.
On 10 January 2022, they have updated their advisory which put Singapore as a ‘Level 3’ destination where there are ‘high’ levels of Covid-19.
Urges citizens to be fully vaccinated before travel to Singapore
The CDC website also urged the citizens of the United States to be fully vaccinated before travelling to Singapore, while urging the unvaccinated to avoid travel here.
According to their website, countries which are labelled as Level 3 have a rate of about 100-500 new cases over the past 4 weeks per a population of 100,000.
Countries with Level 3 classification
Besides Singapore, the CDC has labelled a few countries under Level 3 as well and they are:
- South Korea
‘Unknown’ Classification last week
Previously on 4 January 2022, the classification given to Singapore by the US CDC was ‘Unknown’.
The CDC then said that this was due to the fact that even travelers who are fully vaccinated run the risk of getting the virus and being a host to spread it.
