An exception to the ban is made for the UK. “To prevent new cases of disease from entering our lands, we will suspend all trips from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days,” the US president said addressing to the nation. He said that more infections were reported in Europe because authorities could not stop trips from China, where the outbreak of COVID-19 began.
