New York, NY (Merxwire) - Although the global new crown pneumonia epidemic has not yet ended, at the end of the year, it is time for family reunions and travel.

Now you can travel to countries with open borders as long as you show a certificate of COVID-19 vaccination and a recent negative test for the virus.

Just travel during the new crown pneumonia epidemic, some things have to be paid attention to. First of all, experts reminded that at least two doses of vaccine should be injected. Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and professor of health policy and management at the George Washington University Milken Public College, said: "Vaccination is the most important safety factor because unvaccinated travelers are more likely to get sick and spread Covid-19 to others."
Next, wear a mask. Dr. Wen believes that the travel risks during the epidemic are closely related to our destination or what we do. Especially if you visit a crowded room or eat in a lively restaurant, it will increase the risk of infection. Therefore, it is recommended that everyone should wear a mask during travel. She said: "Wearing a mask can make travel safer, especially in crowded indoor environments or with people whose vaccination status is unknown. Not just adults. Young children also need to wear masks."
Finally, be patient and be prepared for the expected large crowds. Cincinnati Prestige Travel Leaders President and travel consultant Dave Hershberger said that even if the holidays have not yet come, flight delays, cancellations, and staffing challenges are all predictable.
If you have not been vaccinated yet, are unwilling to wear a mask, or are a very impatient person, delaying your travel plan may also be a good choice to avoid the interference and threat of new coronary pneumonia during your trip.
