KTM trashes reports on no tourism in Kerala till November

Kerala Travel Mart (KTM) has denied reports that all tourism activity in Kerala has been banned till October- November this year in view of COVID-19 outbreak, asserting that the State Government has not come out with any such instruction, KTM President Shri Baby Mathew Somatheeram said.

 “Certain quarters are spreading this false propaganda by misinterpreting the positive suggestion made by State Finance Minister Dr T M Thomas Isaac that efforts to revive tourism in the state should start now itself. It is significant that the Finance Minister has also noted that the experience of the foreign tourists,  who have recovered from COVID-19 by  receiving  effective treatment and care in Kerala , itself will boost the state’s tourism prospects in the coming days”, he said.

The situation in Kerala is expected to become normal by the end of the second phase of the lockdown.

The state is now making all preparations to receive tourists once the country becomes COVID-free. Kerala Tourism is drawing up ambitious plans to attract domestic tourists in a big way, Baby Mathew added.
