A senior White House official said the United States has no intention of lifting COVID-19 travel restrictions for non-Americans.

The decision comes amid pressure from airlines and industry lobbyists to lift the blanket ban before the end of the summer travel season.

The official said that the decision was due to the high number of infections, the transmissibility of the Delta strain of the Corona virus, and the recent warning against travel to Britain.

Cases in the United States continue to rise, especially among the unvaccinated.
