Cuba is Facing Tourism Standstill


Cuba is one of the countries to impose the strictest restrictions in lockdown to contain the spread of virus. All commercial air and maritime travel have been suspended. Anyone leaving or entering Cuba needs special government permission to do so. These restrictions have considerably helped to contain the spread of virus, but it also has drastically affected the economy. All tourism places including restaurants, bars and beaches are also closed. Cuba is an island heavily dependent on tourism and now there are no tourists. The crowded streets are now empty and the newly built hotels by the Cuba government are vacant. People working in the tourism industry are suffering major losses. Till date Cuba has approximately 5,500 coronavirus cases. Cuban officials wanted to eliminate coronavirus before reopening the tourism industry, but in recent weeks they have realized that severe restrictions can not continue more. In late September, Cuban officials eased some restrictions in Havana, allowing restaurants to reopen.
