Dutch government pays for 187 tourists to test viability of pandemic traveling
A tourism company and the government in The Netherlands are paying for an eight-day Greek holiday for 187 people to test the viability of travelling during a pandemic.
The government is spending more than R7000 on each person for the experiment.
The visitors may not leave the resort; not even to go out on to its beach.
More than 25 000 people have applied as test subjects.
