Coronavirus outbreak has taken toll on tourism in Himachal Pradesh: Official

Panaji, Feb 14 (UNI) Himachal Pradesh Tourism Deputy Director Sunayana Sharma on Friday said that outbreak of Coronavirus had taken a toll on the tourism prospects of the state.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event in the city, she said the Coronavirus outbreak had "definitely" affected tourism footfalls in the state, especially in and around Dharamshala.
"In Dharamshala, we have a lot of visitors from China because his Holiness the Dalai Lama is staying there. There are many monastaries. Many Tibetans in exile stay in Himachal Pradesh, they have many relatives in China, who sometimes come to visit. So definitely it has taken a toll," she said.
However, the official said that the Himachal Pradesh had formed a mechanism to promptly quarantine suspects and expressed hope that the outbreak would be over soon.
"We hope the coronavirus outbreak will be a passing thing. As far as Himchal Pradesh government is concerned, we have set up a mechanism for quarantining anybody coming from China or South East Asian countries, if they display any symptoms," she said.
