The administration of US President Donald Trump does not intend to resume hosting flights from the European Union in the near future. White House spokeswoman Kaylee Makinani announced this during a briefing.

"The president knows that travel restrictions were a very important component of saving lives ... There are no plans to cancel them now, but ultimately it is the president’s decision," Makinani said in response to a question whether the president plans to lift travel restrictions in the EU.

The representative of the White House noted that the president takes such measures for reasons of security and concern for the health of the American people.

Thanks to the ban on flights from the EU, the US authorities managed to prevent the death of a coronavirus of almost 3 million citizens, Makinani stated.

According to her, Trump constantly monitors data on the distribution of coronavirus in the country.

As we reported before, Ukrainians and all foreign citizens who have a valid American visa are allowed to enter the United States.
