State Dept. Expanding Its ‘Do Not Travel’ List, Urges Against International Travel | Hallie Jackson


  1. Is the vaccine working? I mean you guys said the vaccine would slow down the curb of infection. I’m not a naysayer or doubting but maybe we need to crunch some data here. What do I know?

    1. @Alvah Nomicron What if genetically we made to handle such viruses but maybe more of the population is older and we are experiencing the results of having a older population.

    2. Sure the vaccine is working against the original strain, and most of the variants. It doesn’t work against the P1 strain, out of Brazil. And, we don’t know if it works against this Indian double mutant. But, as India has only vaccinated 1% of its population, that doesn’t really matter.

    3. Christopher smith So far, only a little over 1 percent of India’s population has been fully vaccinated, according to the Johns Hopkins University of Medicine Coronavirus Resource Center.

      Two companies are producing COVID-19 vaccines in India. Serum Institute of India, based in Pune, is working with AstraZeneca to produce Covishield; Bharat Biotech, based in Hyderabad, has taken a manufacturing license from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) to produce Covaxin.

      To begin with, the magazine’s researchers question the decision to identify only one company (Bharat Biotech) for technology transfer. Varshney said: “Involving more companies in manufacturing could have averted the shortage.

    4. @Christopher smith that is NOT what they are saying, they are saying that you are still protected from the variants after you have been vaccinated

    5. @psycobleach46 tullis I personally don’t just listen to what a talking head says. I use reason, logic, and data from historical information on infection that is not agreeing with the news I see.

  2. Still think Covid is a dem hoax? My best friend on campus just lost a uncle and a cousin to Covid back in India their home.

  3. India is roughly four times the size of Texas and has a population of 1.3 billion people whereas if you put four times as many people into the current population of Texas you would only have 100 million people so I wonder why covid-19 is surging in India

    1. @Doug Ohaver also you get surges in areas where cities are densely populated, the more people crowded in one area the greater the risk of spreading covid

    2. @Alvah Nomicron India’s first wave was with the more infectious variant! There’s been very little increase in infectiousness between what they experienced with their very first cases & outbreak & what they’re dealing with now in that regard. They got cocky though & enjoyed their festivals in recent weeks, that’s why they have the huge case rise now

    1. India’s been sharing their vaccine with other countries in more desperate need, instead of selfishly refusing to export any of it in the way the US has been. Their vaccine rates are low because of this

    2. @Me Here and what does that have anything to do with the efficacy of the vaccine? and no, ive not heard of idias vaccine, i must have missed that one. what vaccine do they produce?

  4. i was expecting india of all places to have had it the worse to begin with. i am actually very impressed with the fact it has taken this long to become number 2 for such a densely populated country.

    1. Have you been listening to what people, who live in India, say, not official reports? It’s been bad there for a very long time. There have been satellite images of more and more Muslim graves being dug. (I know that the majority are Hindu, but pyres are transitory.) I fully expect the next variant, that evades naturally and artificially acquired immunity, to come from India. They’ve only vaccinated 1% of their population.

  5. Imagine using anyone from Sky News seriously. On par with Fox “News” and leaves a bad taste in mouth.

  6. Depending on one stream of income had never made any millionaire and earning check don’t put you on forbes

    1. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  7. Ken Raynor and 2 more
    I Call Him “Mr. President”: Stories of Golf, Fishing, and Life with My Friend George H. W. Bush

  8. India is manufacturing its own vaccine, but they still need to import supplies, like bioreactor bags and cell culture medium, from the US and Europe. But, countries are keeping the supplies they produce, for their own vaccine manufacture. It will be interesting if India’s home grown vaccine (from Bharat Biotech) is produced in large quantities, as it is the only attenuated virus vaccine being produced against Covid. (Don’t worry, all you religious nuts, no human embryos are involved. The cells the virus is grown in come from Green Monkey kidneys.) Because the countries that manufacture some of the needed supplies, won’t currently export them, India does not have enough vaccine yet. Biden has said, the US will resume exporting, when we have enough vaccine supply at home. Sometimes, a global supply chain causes more problems than it solves.

    1. Add to that that India has been exporting much of it’s home grown vaccine to it’s neighbours who have been in more desperate need of it than they have been

  9. 0:23 well I’m glad to see the US government is finally being responsible & advising Americans not to travel, so as to prevent the most infested country from exporting the virus to other countries. From an individual perspective, of course it’s safer for people to be anywhere but the US from a covid perspective

  10. I think that is a Healthy decesion. We have to draw a line in the sand and don’t cross it. THIS IS NOT FOREVER, what is your family worth I am not talking money either.
