[导读]Operations at the world's deepest gold mine, in South Africa, have been halted after 164 cases of coronavirus were detected there.
中国铁合金网讯:美国对过去14天到过巴西的外国人实施了旅行限制。
 
(巴西)这个南美国家最近成为了全球第二大冠状病毒病例的主要热点,该国卫生部周日宣布,已记录病例超过了36万,超过2.2万人死亡。
 
一位白宫发言人说,实施限制措施将有助于确保新病例不会被带进美国。
 
白宫新闻秘书凯利·麦克纳尼在一份声明中说:“今天的行动将有助于确保到过巴西的外国人不会成为我们国家的新增感染源。”
 
“试图从[巴西]进入美国的受感染个人未被发现的潜在传播威胁着我们的运输系统和基础设施的安全以及国家安全”,白宫周日发布的暂停令表示。
 
在申请进入美国之前,两周内到过巴西的非美国人将被拒绝入境。这一限制不会影响两国之间的贸易。
 
该限制将于5月28日美国东部时间23:59(格林尼治时间03:59)生效,不适用于美国公民及美国公民的配偶、父母、法定监护人或子女,以及大多数21岁以下的兄弟姐妹。
 
周日早些时候,白宫国家安全顾问罗伯特·奥布莱恩(Robert O'Brien)对哥伦比亚广播公司(CBS)“面向全国”(Face the Nation)表示,巴西的旅行限制预计很快就会出台。奥布莱恩说:“我们希望这是暂时的,但由于巴西的局势,我们将采取一切必要措施保护美国人民。”
 
他还补充说,“我们将逐一考察其他国家”。
 
美国总统特朗普本周早些时候暗示,他正在考虑禁止从巴西旅行。
 
美国目前冠状病毒病例居世界领先地位,已有超过160万已知病例,死亡人数接近10万。
 
美国的其他旅行限制
 
周日的声明是美国为抗击病毒传播而实施的最新的旅行限制。
 
最近访问过中国、伊朗、欧洲申根区、英国和爱尔兰共和国的外国人已经被禁止进入美国。
 
加拿大和美国最近还同意将两国共同边界的关闭范围扩大到非必要的旅行。
 
巴西近况如何?
 
巴西最近的已知病例超过了俄罗斯。博尔索纳罗总统一再否认病毒带来的风险。
 
巴西的死亡人数大约每两周翻一番,英国的死亡人数每两个月翻一番,法国每四个月翻一番,意大利每五个月翻一番。
 
专家警告说,由于缺乏测试,实际数字可能要高得多。
 
原文内容:The US has imposed travel restrictions on foreign nationals who have been to Brazil in the last 14 days. 
 
The South American nation recently became the world's second major hotspot for coronavirus cases.
 
Brazil has recorded more than 360,000 cases, the country's health ministry announced on Sunday, while over 22,000 people have died with the virus.
 
A White House spokeswoman said the restrictions would help ensure new cases are not brought into the US. 
 
"Today's action will help ensure foreign nationals who have been in Brazil do not become a source of additional infections in our country," White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.
 
Non-Americans who have been in Brazil in the two weeks before they request entry to the US will be denied that entry.  The restriction will not affect trade between the two countries. 
 
The suspension is to take effect on May 28 at 23:59 EDT (03:59 GMT). 
 
The travel ban will not apply to US citizens, or to the spouse, parent, legal guardian, or child of a US citizen or lawful permanent resident, and most siblings under the age of 21. 
 
"The potential for undetected transmission of the virus by infected individuals seeking to enter the United States from [Brazil] threatens the security of our transportation system and infrastructure and the national security," said the suspension order published by the White House on Sunday.  
 
Earlier on Sunday, White House National security adviser Robert O'Brien told CBS "Face the Nation" that travel restriction for Brazil were expected shortly. 
 
"We hope that'll be temporary, but because of the situation in Brazil, we're going to take every step necessary to protect the American people," Mr O'Brien said.
 
He added that "we'll take a look at the other countries on a country-by-country basis for sure". 
 
US President Donald Trump suggested earlier this week that he was considering imposing a ban on travel from Brazil.
 
The US currently leads the world in coronavirus cases. It has over 1.6 million known cases and is nearing 100,000 deaths linked to the virus. 
 
Other US travel restrictions
 
Sunday's announcement is the latest travel restriction imposed by the US in a bid to combat the spread of the virus. 
 
Foreign nationals who have recently visited China, Iran, the European Schengen area, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland are already barred from entry to the US.
 
Canada and the US also recently agreed to extend the closure of their shared border to non-essential travel. 
 
What is the situation across Brazil?
 
Brazil recently overtook Russia with regards to known cases of the virus. President Jair Bolsonaro has repeatedly dismissed the risks posed by the virus.
 
The number of deaths in Brazil has been doubling roughly every two weeks, compared to about every two months in the UK, four months in France, and five months in Italy.
 
Expert have warned that the real figure may be far higher due to a lack of testing.
