Are your vacations safe? 10 safest destinations for Covid – and the 10 biggest threats | Travel News | To travel
Holidays are already back for a number of destinations, but from October 4, overseas travel is expected to become even easier for fully vaccinated Britons. However, that does not mean that the coronavirus has been eliminated worldwide.
Next is New Zealand, where the daily case rate is just 3.79 per million people in the country.
However, New Zealand has yet to match the vaccination rate of other countries in the world.
Only 33.83 percent of the country received two blows.
Based on the rate of COVID-19 cases, Egypt is named the third “safest” destination.
According to the data, the country has recorded 5.70 daily cases of coronavirus per one million in the nation.
Despite this, the vaccine rollout in Egypt lags far behind some of the most contagious countries in the world.
Indonesia and Poland are considered the fourth and fifth “safest” countries based on Covid cases, with 11.69 and 16.55 new daily COVID-19 cases per million people.
While Poland has made progress on its immunization program, with 50.92 percent of people receiving two doses of the vaccine, Indonesia is lagging behind.
There, only 16.36 people received two injections of COVID-19.
India, Monaco, Japan, Hungary and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) round out the top 10 “safest” destinations based on daily case rates.

Israel and Cuba also register high daily cases, with figures of 829.06 and 711.50 respectively.

Cuba has fully vaccinated 39.83% of the nation.
Saint Lucia records 605.82 new cases of coronavirus per one million people every day. The nation has fully immunized 15.82 percent of the population.

However, their vaccination rates vary.
In the United States, 54.03 percent of the country has received a full course of immunization. In Lithuania, this figure stands at 60.18 per cent. However, in Antigua and Barbuda, the figure is only 37.29 percent.
Estonia and Turkey round out the list, registering 351.22 and 322.67 new cases of Covid per million people respectively.
Turkey vaccinated 49.72 percent of the nation, while Estonia fully vaccinated 44.44 percent.
Although case rates can be high in some countries, it is important to note vaccination next to this number.
According to evidence from the National Institute for Health Research: “Vaccination reduces COVID-19 hospital admissions.”
Evidence published in June 2021 by Public Health England showed that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is 96% effective against hospitalization after two doses and that the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is 92% effective against hospitalization after two doses.
According to data from the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, as of September 22, 2021, the UK has recorded 7,496,547 confirmed cases of coronavirus.
Globally, this makes it the fourth most contagious country in the world after the United States, India and Brazil.
While the UK has one of the highest infection rates in the world, currently the fifth most infectious country in the world, the rollout of the vaccine in the UK has grown to the same extent.
As a result, deaths and hospitalizations are now on the decline.
How to reduce the risk of Covid during the holidays
Ultimately, when planning a vacation, vaccination and testing remain two of the primary ways to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
Vacationers should also apply their usual daily precautions, including wearing a mask, hand washing and sanitizing, and social distancing to reduce the risk of transmission.
