President Trump Suspends Travel from Brazil Amid Coronavirus Surge

On Sunday evening, President Donald Trump issued a travel ban on Brazil which is currently a major Coronavirus hotspot.

Brazil is only second to the U.S. in the number of confirmed Coronavirus cases.

The country has over 347,000 cases and more than 22,000 deaths from the novel Coronavirus.

Filipe Martins, advisor to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on international affairs, said, “By temporarily banning the entry of Brazilians to the U.S., the American government is following previously established quantitative parameters that naturally reach a country as populous as ours.”

The travel ban from Brazil goes into effect late Thursday.

As with other travel bans in countries such as China, Europe, and the United Kingdom, this ban does not apply to legal permanent residents. A spouse, parent, or child of a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident also would be allowed to enter the country.
