We can expect cases to start rising as tourism increases as many European countries now going into their next wave (ahead of Japan).
Fortunately, only mild symptoms for most but those at risk should be that bit more careful going into winter.
Super high number for a holiday ….
i expect 3 more months of these daily "reports"...,what a...mudan
For those concerned about an increase in cases due to tourism, remember all tourists must either be twice jabbed and boosted or have a negative PCR test. That means it's impossible for them to bring the virus into the country. This is Science, people. Trust it!
Ridiculous to say cases will rise because of tourists?
Aren't they vaccinated? So how is that possible?
2 weeks longer and we'll have flattened the curve. Stay strong.
After all this time, how is it possible that you still don't understand?
