Another famous Mediterranean country has removed “covid barriers”. It is about Tunisia. According to the official statement of the country’s tourism office, “after the improvement in Tunisia of indicators related to Covid-19, and taking into account the stationary state of the epidemic on a national and international scale,” the Ministry of Health decided to release “all those who arrive on the territory of Tunisia, from the obligation to present a negative PCR or antigen test or vaccine passport. That is, tourists will be able to enter without any problems.
As for the mask regime, wearing a mask remains mandatory only for those who have symptoms of infection. The recommendations also include ventilation of closed spaces.
“Sanitary protocols will be updated by the development of the epidemiological situation,” the experts added.
We would like to remind you that only China, where the measures are being strengthened again, is going “across” the general trend towards the complete removal of covid barriers. It is about a popular city like Shanghai and sought-after places like Disneyland and the TV tower “Oriental Pearl”.
Tourist attractions have been temporarily closed since Tuesday due to the latest outbreak of COVID-19 in the city. Moreover, we are talking about only 20 local confirmed cases and 158 asymptomatic carriers for the entire multi-million city. In addition, Disneyland announced the closure just four days after reopening on November 25. The Pearl of the East was closed to the public a day early and “until further notice.” Also, by the way, Shanghai has increased testing requirements for restaurants and other commercial establishments. All visitors must present a 48-hour negative test result. It’s good that the service is free until the end of 2022. However, those who have arrived or returned to Shanghai in less than five days are prohibited from entering public places such as restaurants, shopping malls, supermarkets, food markets, etc. Local officials advised residents to — predictably — stay home.
