British Tourists Escaped
A local ski resort in Switzerland faced a very unique situation. The Swiss government rolled out a mandate for compulsory 10 days quarantine for tourists coming from the UK since 14th of December. This mandate was to control the spread of new COVID 19 variant found in the UK. However, around 200 out of the total 420 tourists falling in this category escaped the quarantine facility in the cover of darkness & left the local administration in utter apprehension. The local community spokesperson said that the community felt betrayed & they are fearing the spread of the virus among themselves. Tourists from Britain make almost 21% of the ski resort industry in Switzerland. Most of them start to fill up the place by Christmas. SO far Switzerland has identified two new cases of the COVID 19 South Africa variant.
