The U.S. government is considering new requirements for travelers coming from China.

Concerns over the ongoing COVID-19 surges in China and the lack of data disclosure, have inspired the possible new rules. Officials stated that without the knowledge of transparent data records, it is difficult for public health officials to ensure they would be able to identify any potential new variants and take the proper measures needed to prevent the spread.

The U.S. is following the science and advice of public health experts while consulting with partners and laying out the steps needed to take in order to protect the American people.

Japan has already imposed a rule that China travelers require a negative COVID test before arriving to the country.

Taiwan is also considering conducting COVID tests on visitors from China as well.
