US suspends all travel from Europe for 30 days - Trump

United States President Donald Trump announced on Thursday the country will suspend all travel from Europe, excluding the United Kingdom, for 30 days starting with Friday in order to contain the coronavirus outbreak. However, the import of goods and cargo won't be stopped.

Trump insisted the US has taken the "most aggressive effort to contain the foreign virus in modern history," adding that the government responded with "great speed and professionalism."

He claimed the European Union failed to take the necessary precautions to prevent the virus from spreading, causing a large number of new clusters in the US to appear due to infected European travelers. Exemptions from the aforementioned measure, he said, will apply to American citizens returning home from Europe, while travel restrictions will also affect foreign nationals who traveled to the Schengen area in the last two weeks.
