Miami Zika infections prompt travel advisory

first_imgFor the first time ever, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a travel advisory to a part of the continental U.S.—a one-square-mile area in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami, where 14 people were infected with Zika after being bitten by local mosquitoes.CDC Director Thomas Frieden urged pregnant women who live and work in the area and their partners to make every effort to avoid mosquito bites and to practice safe sex, and said that expectant mothers who visited Wynwood any time after June 15 should be tested for Zika. The virus can cause severe birth defects in children of women infected at any time during pregnancy. Infection can occur after a mosquito bite or through sexual contact with an infected partner.Frieden noted that the CDC advisory covers only a small area because the mosquito that spreads Zika—Aedes aegypti—can only travel about 500 feet.Ashish Jha, K.T. Li Professor of International Health at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, agreed with the CDC’s decision, noting that it doesn’t make sense to create panic when there isn’t evidence of the disease spreading elsewhere. The risk of getting Zika around Miami is “very, very small,” he said in an Aug. 1, 2016 NPR interview. “Most people who go to southern Florida today are not going to be bitten by a mosquito that is infected with Zika.” Read Full Storylast_img read more

Boris Žgomba, Uniline: The period of hyper-demand for Croatia is over, but it is not time to wait but for concrete and prompt action

first_imgThis tourist year will be one of the most challenging in a couple of years, when Croatia achieved double-digit record growth in arrivals and overnight stays from year to year. “If we compare the state of reservations for the entire tourist year 2019 with the state of reservations for 2018, the current sales results are really slightly weaker than expected. ” Boris Žgomba, President of the Management Board of Uniline, the leading destination management company in Croatia, points out, and adds: “The fact is that hotel capacities, in general, are less well filled in some segments for the time being, with the fact that the backlog of hotel bookings so far is smaller than in private accommodation and camps.” But perhaps the most important issue of the current development of tourism still concerns the legislation that our tourism, despite all the efforts of the private sector, still strongly holds at the bottom of the competitiveness scale, and concerns primarily the amount of VAT in tourism. Web Croatia eeeds Boris Žgomba has a similar opinion, emphasizing that domestic tourism should not be viewed solely through the prism of prices. “My personal opinion is that we often make mistakes when we look at domestic tourism exclusively through the prism of prices. Price is just one of the competitive factors. The most important competitive factor is what and what value we give for money and whether we have a buyer who is willing to pay that price. It is also true that in the period of hyper demand, the prices of some accommodation capacities and non-board, especially restaurant offers, grew at a faster pace than expected. The time to come will show how justified this was or not, and I think that in the foreseeable future there will be some price adjustments, and downwards, for some of the bidders, who have jumped out of the market acceptable limits.”Says Žgomba. “The end of the double-digit percentage increase in the number of guest arrivals has come to an end, and now we are fighting for each guest. Those who follow Croatian tourism know that I personally warned about this already in the reviews for the tourist year 2018. I am sure that many in the Croatian tourism sector were well aware that trends in such dynamic demand cannot last forever. Less interest in Croatia is the result of redirecting and strengthening the interest of some guests from key emitting, especially European markets, to other destinations in the Euro-Mediterranean area such as Turkey and Greece and African countries closer to the Mediterranean or the tendency to spend their holidays at home”Žgomba points out and adds that the motive for coming is a key factor in choosing a destination and that is what we must focus on through a quality offer of content throughout the tourist year. On the other hand, we cannot have a record tourist season every year, and most importantly, Greece and Turkey must not be our direct competition because these are different tourist products. There is an opportunity for Croatia to differentiate the tourist product through authenticity and focus on quality. For a long time we had to stop counting only arrivals and overnight stays, and use this “fruitful” year for our tourism to position ourselves and make that clear distinction from the competition. Personally, I think that unfortunately we did not succeed, so we wake up late again. “There is no doubt that the CNTB budgets, both at the national and county and local levels, must find funds for these additional activities. The activities and campaigns, which were planned within the annual work program and operational action plan for 2019, are subject to changes in both content and scope as it is now clear that key market circumstances have changed. Funds within the system certainly exist, it is necessary to rebalance them on the fly and redirect them to more efficient content and channels. The concrete additional involvement of the Government of the Republic of Croatia with additional funds for national tourism promotion is to be expected, since the success of the tourism sector significantly depends on the filling of the state budget. This is not a time to wait but for concrete and prompt actionŽgomba emphasizes and warns. On the other hand, we can no longer talk about how Greece and Turkey will wake up, but they have also woken up and proactively “attacked” the market with much better prices. Although there is no reason to panic or reduce the price, just focus on quality, authenticity and value for money. center_img The period of hyper-demand, which we had in Croatian tourism from 2016 to 2018, has passed, Žgomba emphasizes, adding that the causes should be sought in increasing the supply of competitive receptive capacities in the Mediterranean and their more intensive marketing efforts accompanied by significant price benefits. in the atmosphere of the announcement of the recession in a number of European countries had a significant impact. The focus must be on niche and quality, not quantity. When asked how, Žgomba points out that it is necessary to continue to act more directly and proactively towards key stakeholders in foreign emitting tourist markets, especially when it comes to tour operators, travel agencies and other holders of organized and selective arrival programs. “This is unquestionable and I emphasize once again that right now and without waiting, a way and means must be found to further intensify and accelerate the dynamics of reservations and speed up booking for Croatian destinations. The Croatian National Tourist Board is actively preparing activities and measures to provide concrete support to tour operators, both for our strongest European emitting markets and for the growing Far Eastern ones. The focus at the moment should certainly be on European markets, which, as we know, traditionally fill a significant part of the total domestic accommodation capacity, especially when it comes to camps and family accommodation. pointed out Žgomba. Last week, the CNTB secured an additional ten million kuna for marketing and PR activities abroad through redistribution. These are funds that will be directed to the organization of promotional activities and events, advertising in the media, marketing projects with domestic and foreign tour operators and agencies, and workshops, education and presentations with buyers in the country and abroad, in 16 emitting markets: Germany, Great Britain, Austria and Switzerland, Italy, France, Sweden and Norway, the Netherlands and Belgium, Poland, Russia and Ukraine, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovenia. What is positive, at least in the media space, is finally no longer the emphasis only on the mere counting of arrivals and overnight stays, and therefore the fundamental success of the season, but the focus on quality, content and tourist year, not season. Thus, this year, according to Minister Capelli, growth is expected to be around 3 percent compared to last year. So, we can no longer expect high growth from year to year, and the fight begins for each guest. In the end, Žgomba points out that we are still uncompetitive in relation to the Mediterranean countries and that it is high time for a lower VAT rate in tourism. “Croatia remains uncompetitive with Mediterranean countries in terms of fiscal levies. It is high time to finally reduce the VAT rate in tourism to the level of our competing Mediterranean destinations and adequately regulate the special procedure of taxation of travel agencies, which still puts agencies in an unequal market position”Concludes Žgomba. Although this is a reaction and an increase in the advertising budget, it is certainly not enough, and it is necessary to further focus on promotion. Especially the mentioned amount is not large when we look at the European frameworks and the market, as well as the budgets of the competitors. But when you are “small” (in the context of a budget) then you have to be proactive, creative, innovative and think outside the box in order to position our message as well and clearly as possible and jump out of the crowd. As the time of tourist fairs has begun, and the most important one for Lijepa naša, the ITB fair in Berlin, is currently underway, the question arises as to the situation on the ground and the interest in Croatia. What was quietly talked about on the sidelines, proved to be true, and that is that reservations and interest are still lower than last year.
