The White House announced Sunday that it's prohibiting foreigners from traveling to the United States if they have been in Brazil in the last two weeks, two days after that country recorded the second-highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases.

"They're having a rough go of it.

We've had a rough go of it." National security adviser Robert O'Brien said earlier on Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he hoped the move could be reconsidered at some point.

"We hope that'll be temporary, but because of the situation in Brazil, we're going to take every step necessary to protect the American people." Brazil on Friday surpassed Russia to become the world No.

2 hot spot for coronavirus cases, second only to the United States.

"I don’t want people coming over here and infecting our people." U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he was considering imposing a ban on travel from Brazil.

The new restrictions bar most non-U.S. citizens who have visited Brazil within the past 14 days.

Green card holders, close relatives of U.S. citizens and flight crew members, among select others, would be exempt.

The White House said the restrictions would not apply to the flow of commerce between the two countries.

Woman who fell in love with female best friend reveals how they got pregnant at the same time

A career woman who married her female best friend - before they fell pregnant "in tandem" using a £72 home insemination kit and a sperm donor found online - describes their babies as "almost twins," as they were born three days apart.Inseparable after meeting at school in Venezuela, South America, Karina Rincon, 31, and Kelly Mesa, 32, then moved to the USA after graduating - living all around the vast country separately, before connecting in Miami, Florida, when they settled there in 2013.Both successful biomedical engineers, until then they had only dated men, but after confessing their true feelings, they became a couple and married in September 2017, when their thoughts turned to starting a family.Priced out of expensive IVF clinics, they bought a £72 home artificial insemination kit, before finding a sperm donor online and doubling their chances of having a baby by both trying - never thinking they would each fall pregnant on their first attempt.Now living as a family of four in Los Angeles, California, after Kelly gave birth to baby Leo on July 7, 2019, and her wife to his sister Sophie just three days later, Karina said: “I’m really glad we didn’t go into labour at the same time."That was a worry of ours, but thankfully, being three days apart meant that I could be there when Leo was born and Kelly could when Sophie was."
