(KYMA, KECY/NBC News) - The U.S. State Department is adding more countries to its 'Do Not Travel' list. Officials said it's boosting its guidance to include 80% of countries worldwide due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
There are currently 34 countries on the travel list as of now and some of those countries include Chad, Kosovo, Kenya, Brazil, Argentina and Haiti.
If the list reaches 80% as intended, it would mean an addition of nearly 130 countries.
The State Department said in a statement that the change is not because of current health situations in a given country, but rather "reflects an adjustment in the State Department's travel advisory system."
