United States has issued a 'Do Not Travel' warning for Germany and Denmark as coronavirus cases rise in the countries. This is an important step to further curb the rapidly spreading coronavirus infection.

US health bodies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State Department, made the announcement on Monday and advised people against traveling to Germany and Denmark.

The US has marked both the countries in its "Level Four: Very High" list. The State Department issued a "Do Not Travel" advisory for the two countries. As of now, the CDC lists about 75 destinations worldwide at Level Four. The list includes countries in Europe, including Britain, Norway, Belgium, Greece, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland and the Czech Republic.

World Health Organization (WHO) said a few days ago that European countries should work harder to contain the spread of the virus amid new deaths and cases. Recent transmission rates in 53 countries are of "grave concern", WHO's Hans Kluge warned.

Austria has already imposed a complete lockdown in the country after the number of cases rose sharply in the country. The nation also announced a number of new mandatory restrictions last week.

Germany has decided to impose a cap on public gatherings in view of the boom of infections. The country's hospitals are rapidly filling up with new coronavirus patients. Prevalence is seen largely in unvaccinated children and people vaccinated early in the year.
