The US has eased travel restrictions for many countries as the roll-out of coronavirus vaccines continues.

Its public health agency updated its criteria, which saw 61 countries lowered from a Level 4 rating.

Destinations downgraded to Level 3

The CDC says: Make sure you are fully vaccinated before traveling to these destinations. Unvaccinated travelers should avoid nonessential travel to these destinations.

Most passengers from the UK are still banned from travelling to the US.

Travelers from the US can visit the UK but must self-isolate, that’s Because the US is on the UK’s “amber list” meaning visitors from America have to self-isolate for 10 days on arrival.

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.
