EU Prepares To Block Americans From Visiting Due To Trump's COVID Bungling

The final decision on which countries will be excluded from the EU's list of admissible travelers is expected early next week, before the bloc reopens on July 1.

The guidelines presented by the commission point to three criteria that a country would have to satisfy to gain access to the region: The number and rate of daily infections, the chances someone infected with the virus will pass it on while in Europe and the ability of European Union citizens to enter the U.S.

A total of 123,126 deaths in the country have been attributed to the disease.

European Union countries may bar US travelers because of coronavi.

The US and Brazil each recorded more than 100,000 cases over the seven days from June 15 to June 21, the World Health Organization (WHO) said, the only two countries with such high infection numbers.

The move by the EU is similar to one made by Trump in March, when the President enraged European leaders by banning citizens from most EU countries from traveling to the United States.

The EU is considering blocking Americans from entering the bloc because the United States has not adequately controlled the spread of the virus, according to a report from the New York Times, which viewed draft lists of allowable travelers. Officials have warned that the failure of member nations to abide by the list can result in the reintroduction of borders.

It's not clear how the prohibition of Americans would affect Europe's tourist economy.

In January, Trump banned entry to the United States of any foreign national who had recently visited China, where the outbreak started late a year ago. Meanwhile Europe has largely calmed the outbreak, even as the United States see infections continue to spike in new hotspots around the country and Trump continues to refuse to wear a mask or send states the resources needed to further expand testing. Here's the bad part: When you do testing to that extent, you're going to find more people, you're going to find more cases.

He later said "I don't kid".
