U.S. Issues Level 4 Warning:  'Do Not Travel' 

    The Trump administration has upgraded its already bleak warning to Americans against all international travel as the coronavirus outbreak spreads. However, on Thursday The State Department issued a new alert urging Americans not to travel abroad under any circumstances and to return home if they are already abroad unless they plan to remain overseas. 

“The Department of State advises US citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19,” it said in its worldwide "Do Not Travel" advisory. “In countries where commercial departure options remain available, US citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. US citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel.”

The global “level four” warning was unprecedented as such alerts are generally reserved for specific countries embroiled in conflict, natural disasters, or where Americans face specific risks. 

The upgrade will likely have little practical effect because it is not mandatory and there are now limited transportation options for international travel. 

The only way to ban Americans from going abroad would be to invalidate the use of US passports for such travel, a bar that is currently in place only for North Korea - a country not reporting a single case of coronavirus infections because nobody has the balls to tell Kim his country has an infection. Well, maybe they tried, and they're all missing now.😒
