From Herd Immunity to nothing -the checklist:
Where is your country when it comes to a global comparison of regions that have previously had access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
No one is arguing that frontline health workers must be the top priority when it comes to getting the COVID-19 vaccine. It is important to treat tourism as a priority. This is often overlooked. and World Tourism Network (WTN) wants to change that.
- Seven countries in the world have achieved herd immunity and some no longer have restrictions
- 67 countries in the world are in dire straits when it comes to vaccines and those countries include first world economies like South Africa
- In 31 countries, 50% or more of the population is vaccinated and life is slowly returning to normal
We are all together and no one is safe until we are all safe, were the words of US President Biden when referring to vaccination rates in the world and patent laws for the vaccines.
The travel and tourism sector is the economic sector hardest hit by the pandemic. Full flights in the United States, record arrivals in Hawaii are encouraging signs, but closely tied to vaccine statistics.
