Donald Trump announced plans to revoke bans on travel from the UK, Europe and Brazil, but the move was swiftly slapped down by Joe Biden’s incoming presidential team amid concerns over emerging Covid variants. Two days before leaving the White House, the outgoing US president rescinded restrictions barring non-US citizens arriving from Britain, where coronavirus cases have been surging, as well as Brazil and the European Union. Mr Trump said the requirement to show a negative test result to fly into the country “will help to prevent air passengers” from spreading the virus, clearing the way for him to revoke travel restrictions which have been in place since March last year.
Donald Trump is reportedly set to lift coronavirus travel bans on most non-US citizens arriving from the UK, Europe and Brazil. The restrictions are set to end under a new proclamation from the president, who is due to leave office on Wednesday. The restrictions being rescinded have barred nearly all non-U.S. citizens who within the last 14 days have been in Brazil, the UK, Ireland and much of Europe.

(Bloomberg) -- Asian equities pushed higher on Tuesday and bond yields ticked up as investors awaited comments from Treasury Secretary nominee Janet Yellen on U.S. stimulus and the dollar.Stocks rose in Japan, South Korea and Australia. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 contracts advanced and the greenback was steady. Benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury yields climbed to about 1.1%. U.S. markets were shut for a holiday Monday and European equities closed with small gains.Yellen’s Senate confirmation hearing is likely to feature topics from foreign-exchange policy to taxes, but will also serve as the first congressional forum where lawmakers will vet President-elect Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief plan. Traders will also monitor Donald Trump’s last full day in office.Elsewhere, oil and gold dipped. Bitcoin fluctuated around the $36,000 level.After a strong start to the year, the rally in global stock markets is losing steam as investors turn to the upcoming earnings season and the difficult negotiations ahead for Biden’s relief plan. His proposals could be watered down under congressional opposition, and there’s the possibility that some taxes could rise.In her testimony, Yellen will affirm the U.S.’s commitment to market-determined exchange rates and make clear the country doesn’t seek a weaker dollar for competitive advantage, according to a Wall Street Journal report that cited Biden transition officials. Biden transition spokespeople were unable to confirm the report.“The extensive advance discussion of Treasury nominee Yellen’s views on the dollar suggests that she does not want her nomination hearings to be market moving,” Steven Englander, head of North American macro strategy at Standard Chartered Plc, wrote in a note. He added that “reassuring is likely seen as the preferred stance.”On the coronavirus front, cases topped 95 million, while the U.S. death toll from Covid-19 neared 400,000.
