The vice president of the hoteliers and restaurateurs grouped in Asonahores Friday said more than 50 flights with tourists who were headed to Mexico will arrive in the country this week, after the H1N1 virus that affects that nation prompted a change of destination.
Arturo Villanueva said those flights are being received via an agreement with Mexican hoteliers, as a show of solidarity.
He said all the necessary preventive measures have been taken across the country’s ports and airports and all necessary equipment have been acquired to gauge body temperatures.
The hotelier also lauded president Leonel Fernandez’s decision to allocate 50 million pesos to purchase antiviral medicine.
Villanueva said in addition to the measures the authorities have taken in hospitals and hotel zones, any person with an abnormal body temperature is subjected to an examination.
