The United States has issued a travel advisory for Germany and Denmark due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in the two European countries, Reuters reports. The European region as a whole has seen a recent increase in infections.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now rate Germany and Denmark as “level four: very high,” telling Americans to avoid going there. The State Department has also issued “Do Not Travel” advisories for the two countries.

Many European countries are on the CDC’s “level four” list, including Austria, Great Britain, Belgium, Greece, Norway, Switzerland, Romania, Ireland and the Czech Republic. .

The World Health Organization predicts that Europe could reach more than 2.2 million deaths from COVID-19 by March 2022. The projection comes after the organization said that Europe and the Asia was again the epicenter of the pandemic earlier this month.

Austria officially launched a full nationwide coronavirus lockdown on Monday.

It was the first country in the European Union to reinstate such strict measures amid the fourth wave of the pandemic. About 50,000 protesters gathered over the weekend to oppose the country’s fourth lockdown. Austria is also putting in place a nationwide vaccination mandate, which means that by February 1, all Austrians over the age of 18 will need to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to the law.

COVID-19 cases in the European region, which stretches as far as Central Asia and includes 53 countries, rose to nearly 4,200 a day last week, the WHO reported. This is double the levels recorded at the end of September, according to the Associated Press.

There have been 1.5 million cumulative deaths in the region since the start of the pandemic.

On November 4, WHO Europe predicted that half a million more lives could be lost to COVID-19 by February 2022. The organization also said that if Europe and Asia managed to carry a 95% universal mask, they could save up to 188,000 of those lives, and stressed that vaccines are “the most powerful asset” in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

In the United States, deaths from COVID-19 in 2021 have exceeded the death toll of 2020, according to Johns Hopkins University. Cases are increasing in more than 30 states ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday – with the latest wave of pressure in Upper Midwest hospitals.

Over the weekend, 3 million Americans received a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine after the FDA and CDC expanded access to Moderna and Pfizer boosters for all adults, reported the White House.
