Japan tourism boost suddenly led to virus spread

Published on : Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Adviser’s recently mentioned that the all new increase in coronavirus attack in Japan might have happened because of a sudden tourism push campaign. The travel tourism industry experienced a complete pause for a while, and this affected severely on the economic environment of the country. Until recently as the virus threats and panic reduced, the Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga decided to launch a campaign to promote domestic tourism and this decision might have contributed to a sudden and sharp increase in coronavirus infection cases in the country, according to a prominent adviser to the government’s pandemic response said.

While the government is confident on his steps and has mentioned that there is no evidence stating the recent surge happened owing to the campaign, however, the campaign was suspended in December soon after the mounting COVID-19 cases, and the state focussed on handling of the pandemic.

The campaign, which began in July, had offered various travel-related discounts and vouchers in a bid to prop up regional economies hammered by the pandemic, but critics said it risked spreading the virus from cities to the countryside.
