US President Donald Trump imposed travel sanctions on 26 European countries and barred people from travelling to the United States.

They saw the move as mounting pressure to take any action against the rapid spread of the Coronavirus.

According to a British news agency Reuters report, he announced the dramatic move while making a speech at the Oval Office as he was battling the health and economic setbacks to the United States due to the deadly virus and was facing criticism. That they did not take this risk seriously.

The above travel ban will not apply to the United Kingdom and Ireland, nor does the restriction apply to US citizens.

In addition, the US President also announced several economic measures to support US businesses, which are facing sudden losses from consumer demand reduction.

Donald Trump said that 'this is the most comprehensive and aggressive attempt to confront a foreign virus in modern history'.

"I am confident that by taking such drastic measures, we will reduce the risks to our citizens to a great extent and eventually we will defeat the virus faster," he added.

Later, due to confusion over the closure of trade and equipment from Europe, he had to break up shortly after the speech, in which he said that travel restrictions would not affect trade.

US stocks fell 4 percent after the president's address, indicating another day of deflation for Mullah's Wall Street.

Donald Trump, whose second choice is to be held on November 3, may depend on how well he reacts to the crisis that suddenly unfolded in his presidency.

The US president has left no stone unturned in saying that Europe, America, is partially responsible for the outbreak of the virus, which has so far killed 37 people and affected 281 in the United States.

His move to impose a travel ban on Europe is just as he did earlier this year when he imposed a travel ban on China, where the outbreak is widespread.

In his speech, the US president said that the European Union failed to stop and take precautionary measures in China and other places, leading to a large number of cases in the United States, which led to travel to Europe.

The US President signed the decree, which mostly banned foreigners who stayed anywhere in any European country for 14 days before the date of their arrival in the United States.

The countries that have been banned are Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, according to the US Department of the Interior. Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

This order will not apply to US citizens, lawful permanent residents of the United States, bloody relationships with US citizens, and the like.
