Cyprus To Cover The Cost Of Holidays For Coronavirus01/06/2020
Likewise any-other Mediterranean holiday destinations. Cyprus is a dream destination for holiday-makers and the country to cover the cost of holidays affected by Coronavirus.
This means the government of Cyprus will cover the costs for the tourist once they are sick with the disease. According to The Guardian reports.
Savvas Perdios, the deputy tourism minister, said: “We will cover the cost of hospitalisation of those who test positive during their holiday. And pay for their families and close contacts to be accommodated in quarantine hotels.”
However, the only bills the Greek Cypriot government will not cover are those for repatriation flights and taxis to airports.
Perdios added “Neither Greece nor Spain will be able to do this with the tourism volume they’ll have,”.
In order to re-boost, Cyprus’s tourism industry the government will be opening its hospitality industry from June 1, 2020 and international air travel from June 9, 2020.
But, there are uncertainties that a British can enter in Cyprus beyond this dates. A report doesn’t disclose this information.
As, there are suggestion that the Cypriot government may deny British tourists to entering in Cyprus.
In contrast to infection rates, Cyprus only has 944 (as of June1, 2020) and UK has 276,156 (as of June1, 2020). This may be the key reasons for denial.
Although, the Cypriot ministry of tourism has yet to confirm this information on June 20, 2020. Cyprus is a favourite tourist destination among many of the British nationals.
British tourists has more contribution within the development of tourism industry of the country.
During 2018, there were more than 1 million British people visited in Cyprus than any other parts of Europe.
Only Russia came to the second position with less than a million visitors in a year visiting in Cyprus. Russia has an infection rates of 414,878 (as of June1, 2020). Slightly, above than the UK.
This pandemic disease has a impact on the global tourism industry. Japanese government is now considering to subsidise holidays in an effort to boost its tourism industry.
