“Covid-19: Peolple First of all” is a motto launched by the United Nations World Tourism Organization.
The UNWTO has launched a truly encouraging message, also closely linked to realities.
The entity believes that in a context of uncertainty exacerbated by the pandemic, the first thing is to have updated and reliable information aimed at tourists and sectors that manage the leisure industry.
UNWTO has called to rule out unnecessary or excessive repercussions applied to visitors.

-Ensure with WHO that health measures implemented the day after avoid unnecessary or excesive kind of rules.
-Improve support to the most affected countries.
-To emphasize the resilience demonstrated by tourism and supporting recovery.
The WHO has published some other proposals aimed at those involved in tourism care.
Hotels should attend to some health needs that must arise both physically and psychically after the worldwide pandemia.
One of new rules would be a luggage disinfection area before stored in each accommodation.
It could be required by world health authorities or national authorities that foreing travelers present a medical certificate.
Maybe would be neccesary after de coronavirus to speed up the check-in process in hotels with mobile access cards and not have to interact so much face-to-face.
Restaurants may be required to permanently include a handwashing room at the entrance.
Therefore, it would be necessary to provide wet wipes when sitting to dinner. A detail that will never be small.
Tourists should be confident that the space they occupy in the restaurant is disinfected.
As a tourist receiver, you will have to think about the details related to individual fears that the pandemic will leave in humanity.
Tourism experts around the world recommend innovations and initiatives.
In other words, it will be a matter of immediately adapting each national and therefore the universal tourism industry to a new world of rules and necessary precautions.
Specialists believe that prioritizing special care for tourists will bring back to destinations millions of visitors today unfortunately absent.
