WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 (Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising against travel to the Czech Republic, Hungary and Iceland due to rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in those countries.

The CDC raised its travel recommendation to “Level Four: Very High” for the three countries and told Americans to travel there.

The CDC separately lowered the travel advisory for COVID-19 to “Level One: Low” for Japan, India, Pakistan, Liberia, Gambia and Mozambique.
