Countries are assigned a medical risk rating of ‘Low’, ‘Medium’, ‘High’, ’Very High’, or ‘Rapidly Developing Variable Risk’.
The interactive map features include drill-down capabilities to see specific zones within countries that have a higher travel security risk rating, and city/country search functionality. The interactive map is freely available to clients and media to embed on their websites and to share the information and educate travellers.
