A new strain of coronavirus – the next generation COVID-19 – has emerged and is responsible for a 70 per cent increase in infections in London alone. It has also hit South Africa. Britain is now isolated from the rest of the world and limited to staying within its own borders. The European Union (EU), Canada, Israel and Saudi Arabia have suspended all flights to and from the UK.
In a recent podcast, it became World Tourism Network (WTN) – a new initiative arising from a reconstruction. Travel discussion that started back in March this year, when COVID-19 became a reality – talk to a doctor and coronavirus specialist about what to expect.
Dr. Peter Tarlow from Safer Tourism said that until this point we thought we were starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with COVID-19, and then suddenly someone turned off the light.
He explained that during this podcast, they will be talking to Dr. Garth Morgan, who specializes in infectious diseases and is a faculty member of Texas A&M University of Medicine. Although all the details are not yet known about this new tribe, they will with Dr. Morgan’s knowledge and expertise strive to look at this unfolding situation in the most logical discussion with the information hitherto known.
Should we be afraid of this new tribe? It is dangerous? We hoped the vaccines would be effective, but should we now be in a state of panic or not? Listen to the podcast and find out.
The World Tourism Network will be launched during the month of December with an official launch starting on January 1, 2021. There are already 12 local chapters around the world so far as well as discussion groups on various topics. In this first launch month, there have been and will continue to be sessions that provide an opportunity to get to know members of the World Tourism Network and participate in and listen to interesting travel and tourism discussions. Juergen Thomas Steinmetz, founder of WTN, shared that these events may be seen and listened to here.
