Coronavirus? Barcelona is open for business

About a month ago the world was shaken and paralyzed with the discover of a new viral disease called Coronavirus or COVID19, similar to the flu, that was diagnostic to a man in a Chinese city called, Wuhan.

What is the truth?

Media coverage has been a bit exaggerated and alarmist so far. The truth is it’s definitely better if we all take precautions when travel but, shouldn’t we always take them anyway? I mean, who doesn’t wash their hands often, tries to avoid touching things on the street too much or takes vitamins to keep their immune system high?

Panic and fear are very contagious, more than the Coronavirus, and media have played an important role on spreading it to the point that airline companies so far have been cancelling flights to critical countries for the tourism industry like Italy or China.

Keeping in mind that citizens of those countries are still living there, alive and doing a normal life, we should do the same. Did you have some holidays planned? take them, go, relax and enjoy.

Let’s follow the example of Barcelona, another critical city for the tourism industry that is open for business and more alive than ever!

Barcelona is open for business

Barcelona airport is open and ready to welcome the world.

Currently there are only 9 official confirmed cases of patients with coronavirus in the city, they have been all identified and admitted to the hospital and none of them are of a grave concern.

With that said, Barcelona is a secure place to spend your holidays.

And no worries, La Sagrada Familia and all other Antonio Gaudi’s masterpieces are all open and ready for you to enjoy and take hundres of pictures.

Are you afraid of the common flu? no, right? then why worrying so much about a virus called coronavirus that causes the same symptoms to healthy people?


Treat yourself with a nice tour

To forget about all the stress and hassle with the Coronavirus situation, there’s nothing better than taking a relaxing tour where you will learn about the beautiful Barcelona and enjoy at the same time.


If coming to Barcelona has always been your dream, if you have been saving for years to accomplish your dream, if you had this family vacation planned for so long, if you picked Barcelona for your honeymoon, don’t ruin it. It’s ok to travel, to visit other countries and cultures and to enjoy life.
