New York City—The U.S. capital city of the country’s north, with its historic harbor and dense city center, has long been home to the countrys most famous tourists.
But over the last decade, the number of Colombians visiting the U.K. has dropped precipitously, and now the number visiting the United States has decreased too.
That’s because Colombia’s tourist industry has been hit hard by a combination of the global economic downturn, and by a series of anti-government protests in which anti-immigrant demonstrators have killed dozens and driven more than 100,000 people from their homes.
“It’s a crisis,” says Ana Coronado, a Colombian travel agent in Brooklyn.
“People are afraid to travel here anymore.
People are afraid of being attacked by thugs or being robbed.
So the tourism industry has lost a lot of revenue.
And that’s not the first time that Colombia has experienced this.
It’s happened before.”
Dubai — The UAE government has launched an advisory on how to safely travel to the United States, amid concerns about the spread of coronavirus.
The Department of Health and Welfare said Monday that it has been in contact with American travelers who have contracted the coronaviruses, and advised them to stay home, including if they have health conditions that make them susceptible to infections.
“This is a matter of national security and public health.
As the health care worker, it is important that you take precautions to protect yourself and others from the spread and spread of the virus,” the department said in a statement.
In addition, the department warned Americans against “any travel to countries in which the coronvirus is present, including the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, and South Asia-based countries,” as well as the Middle Eastern countries.
The health department added that it would also consider banning travel to certain regions in the Middle Ages, including those that are part of the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina.
