The African Tourism Board has recommended members to assess the urgency to attend an important gathering like international trade shows and festivals at the time of the threat of Coronavirus.
At present, in Africa, there is only one case of the deadly virus and it’s in a recovering state. It’s significant that we keep it like this. A Coronavirus free continent with an impressive and unique travel product is a tremendous combination, as long as we all play it safe.
Our health systems might not be well equipped to respond to an extended outbreak of this fatal disease, in spite of to say it would massively destroy the charm of our tourism.
ATB chairman Cuthbert Ncube said: “Be informed and alert. Take no risk, and keep Africa safe and beautiful.”
