    USA stops entry from Brazil due to COVID-19

    The number of corona infections in Brazil has been increasing rapidly for weeks. The US is alarmed. The government in Washington imposes extensive entry restrictions for people from the South American country.

    Specifically, this means that non-US citizens who want to enter the USA must not have been to Brazil for 14 days beforehand, the White House said. “The measure will help ensure that foreigners who have been to Brazil do not become a source of new infections in our country,” said President Donald Trump spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany. She added that trade was not affected by the new restrictions.
