The reason: Fewer countries are testing for the virus or reporting the number of COVID-19 cases. That limits the CDC’s ability to calculate travelers' risk, according to the agency.

Most countries abandoned any efforts to limit infections, long ago.

Except China, which has the lowest infection rates in the world according to global health experts and governmental statistical data, (although some might claim Antarctica to have lower rates). All the while, the WHO meekly stands by as its failed programs (in addition to its failed Covid plan) to confront malaria, HPV, cholera, etc. attest to its inability to act as anything more than an out of control agency.

Zero covid is the best Covid.

The country with the lowest rates wins.

There is no need to claim nonsense to demonstrate the Chinese approach is unsustainable and have unnecessary costs in lives and livehoods (as well as degradation of human rights) when compared with other countries that have a lower death rate. This is even worse when taking into account that China systematically hides the 90 to 95% of covid deaths where the patient has a comorbidity, which would mean dozens of countries (including developing ones) are doing better.

You keep repeating this personal opinion of yours as if it was a done conclusion, but fail to prove this is in any way something shared by the medical community. The pandemic had negative consequences in many different things, and that includes public health programs, but that do not prove that the WHO (or any other internation medical authority) is "out of control", it just means rich countries stopped the contributions that those programs required to function properly, you apparently imagine the WHO can magically create enough money to offset the effects of the pandemic, that is not a logical position to take and only evidence your personal bias not shared by the professionals in public health of the world.

US still requires non citizen to show proof of vaccination. One of the few countries to do so. Two people from the same family can enter the US but if one is not a citizen, they can't come in unless they wave a useless piece of paper. Ridiculous. The CDC is a joke.

I'll be going next week. Got my vaccination certificate (I'm at 4 shots now). I don't see what the problem is here - show them the document, and you're in. As long as you're not an anti-vaxx idiot, there's no problem at all.

Not what you were saying last month.
