Unprecedented Times: Trump Bans Travel From Europe Because of Coronavirus
In an announcement from the Oval Office, President Trump on Wednesday night issued a 30-day travel ban from Europe beginning Friday at midnight.
He issued the European travel suspension, citing the progress made in the U.S. fighting coronavirus because of his earlier ban of travel from China.
The ban could have a sweeping impact. Excluding the UK, nearly 11 million passengers flew from Europe to the U.S. in 2018, the last year data are available. The number represented 27 percent of all overseas visitors to the United States.
