The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised Americans to avoid travel for the Thanksgiving holiday due to the rise of the COVID-19 cases.

Thanksgiving is normally the busiest week for travel in the United States. 

In 2019, there was approximately 26 million travellers that passed through the country’s airports in the week surrounding the holiday.

“It’s not a requirement. It’s a recommendation for the American public to consider,”  the CDC’s Covid-19 incident manager, Dr. Henry Walke, said during a press briefing on Thursday.

The United States has recorded more than 11.6 million coronavirus and more than 250,000 deaths so far.
