Foreign tourists cancel visiting Kerala amid Omicron scare

 Thursday, December 9, 2021 


Apprehensions triggered by the very infectious Omicron variant of the coronavirus brought in cancelations by a number of foreign tourists to Kerala.

“My loved ones say that I should come home. The initial plan was to be on holiday for two months. But now with Omicron, I don’t know, I may return in one week. I am yet to decide but am closely following the news,”said Tony Norgreem, a solo traveler from Sweden.

Mr.Norgreem had reached Kovalam on November 28, days before scanning for Omicron had begun or cases confirmed beyond South Africa. He had initial plan to stay for two months, but now, he might have to change his travel and is following the news daily.

Popular tourist locations in Kerala are also empty of foreign tourists although it’s the peak season now. The only relief is the increasing number of domestic tourists.

“Samples of three have tested negative for Omicron. It’s an ongoing process with results of 3-4 more expected. We are fully prepared,” said Kerala Health Minister Veena George.
