Governments Floating the Idea of Travel Bubbles

Countries around the world are starting to look into ways to revive stagnant tourism industries in a way that would at the same time prevent a resurgence in Covid-19 infections. To that end, the concept of the 'travel bubble' has been introduced; allowing travel corridors between specific countries which can be slowly expanded as more countries become coronavirus green zones. To get more insight into this, we speak to Dr. Mario Hardy, about how viable this strategy would be in the Asia Pacific, and the challenge of putting together a standardised set of regulations.
