EP. Famagusta: Russians and Israelis are the first tourists to arrive - The first (small) arrivals (VIDEO)
"Things remain difficult for the tourism industry, but this is a start"
The first tourist arrivals arrived in the area of Protaras and Ayia Napa at the weekend.
These are a small number of tourists from Russia and Israel but what the hoteliers pointed out is that it is a start.
In addition, hoteliers hope that the continuation will be much better so that the tourism industry can restart.
The hotels comply with all protocols and all protection measures to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus.
Tourists came happily even with the restrictions, hoteliers say.
In the last few days, shops, cafes and restaurants have reopened and in the coming days they are expected to reopen even more.
However, the situation remains difficult as the vast majority of the population of Famagusta Province is active in the tourism industry, which has not yet entered a normal pace and so far, tourism can not in any case meet the needs that exist
