The US authorities requested its citizens to reconsider travelling to Bangladesh in view of the coronavirus situation

The US administration has issued a Level 3 travel advisory against Bangladesh, urging its citizens to reconsider their travel to the country.

The US State Department updated their travel instructions on Monday as the Biden administration continues to take measures to control the Covid-19 situation in their country.

The notice said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for Bangladesh due to Covid-19.

A statement from the US state department said Bangladesh lifted its "stay at home" directive. Transportation and business activities have also been introduced in a limited scale. 

The newly elected Biden administration on Monday reinstated the Covid-19 travel restrictions on non-US citizens who have been in Brazil, Ireland, the United Kingdom and much of Europe.

Biden also extended the restrictions to travelers who have recently been to South Africa, where the new coronavirus strain was found. These measures are part of a containment strategy by the administration given that more people have died in the United States from Covid-19 than all of World War II. 

As of Tuesday, 25.3M people have been infected in the States and 421K have died from the disease. 

The Travel advisory also kept the usual warnings about their citizens being careful while travelling to Bangladesh citing criminal activity, terrorism, and kidnapping.

However, it also mentioned that there are no indications of foreigners being targeted because of their nationality.

The notice also said travel is dangerous to the Khagrachari, Rangamati, and Bandarban Hill Tracts districts (collectively known as the Chittagong Hill Tracts) due to occasional communal violence and other security risks.
