Many countries, including Australia, the UK, Italy, Germany, Singapore, France, the United Kingdom, and Hong Kong, have already restricted flights to and from India.

The US has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Advisory, the highest of its kind issued by the State Department, authorizing the voluntary departure of family members of US government employees in Mission India in light of the mounting Covid-19 pandemic.

U.S. citizens who wish to depart India should take advantage of commercial transportation options.  Direct flights between India and the United States are offered daily, with additional flight options available to U.S. citizens via transfers in Paris, Frankfurt, and Doha

The advisory says that access to medical care has become “severely limited in India due to the surge in Covid -19 cases”.

India on Friday morning registered another record single-day spike in cases, with 386,452 Covid-19 positive reported, along with the highest number of deaths in one day — 3,498. 

US Citizens Being Denied Admittance

“US citizens are reporting being denied admittance to hospitals in some cities due to a lack of space,” the website of the US Embassy and the Consulates in India said in a health alert.

“US citizens who wish to depart India should take advantage of available commercial transportation options now.” All routine US citizen services and visa services at the US Consulate General, Chennai, capital of the state of Tamil Nadu, have been cancelled. 

The Level 4 Travel Advisory has asked US citizens “not to travel to India” because of the pandemic.

Indian Lawmaker Subramanian Swamy has expressed surprise over the US decision.
