As of November 22, visitors from Hong Kong and Singapore will not have to quarantine.
The “travel bubble” between the two cities is an important step in stimulating the tourism sector during the pandemic.
According to the plan, tourists from both cities must do nucleic acid tests before the flight, after arrival and before returning, to prove that they are not infected.
Tourists will travel on flights designated for only passengers who are part of the “bubble”, with a maximum of 200 people. At the beginning it will be a daily flight to each city, moving to two trips a day from December 7th.
Hong Kong has registered more than 5,000 infected and 108 killed since the pandemic began. Singapore has a higher number of infections (more than 58 thousand), but less deaths (28).
The covid-19 pandemic caused at least 1,263,890 deaths in more than 50.9 million cases of infection worldwide, according to a report by the news agency France-Presse (AFP).
The disease is transmitted by a new coronavirus detected in late December 2019 in Wuhan, a city in central China.
