As of now, five more Caribbean islands are part of the highest-risk travel category for Covid-19. There are 15 places moved to Level 4, showing how Omicron hit us harder than expected. A place enters Level 4 when there are more than 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days. People should not travel to Level 4 countries.
All of the places added this week
Colombia, Costa Rica, Guadeloupe, Fiji, Jamaica, The Dominican Republic, Kuwait, Mongolia, Niger, Peru, Romania, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Tunisia, The United Arab Emirates.
The Caribbean islands
The Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Saint Barthélemy, and Saint Martin. Haiti was already Level 4. Aruba, the Bahamas, Barbados, the British Virgin Islands, Curaçao and Turks and Caicos – all Level 4, as well.
Level 4 has about 120 places. Back in January, there were only 80, so it is safe to say Omicron is quite dangerous.
Almost all Europe is locked in Level 4.
France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Spain, The United Kingdom.
This week, only Romania was added to the list.
For a country to be part of Level 3, it has to have between 100 and 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days. There were ten new additions.
Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Guatemala, India, Japan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Mali, Republic of the Congo, Senegal.
For a country to be part of Level 2, it has to have 50 to 90 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days, and they’ve only added two: Bangladesh and Brunei.
For a country to be part of Level 1, it has to have fewer than 50 cases per 100,000 residents. China is one of them.
Is it safe to cruise?
Probably not. On the 30th of December, the CDC increased the risk to Level 4. People should avoid it, even if they are vaccinated.
