Romanian tourism suffers severe losses over bird flu

Date: 22.10.2005

Romanian tourism is suffering severe losses because of the bird flu, it appeared Wednesday.

Representatives of different tourism agencies and firms reported that losses worth over a few million euros have been registered following the first confirmed bird flu cases. Hotels in the Danube delta are deserted and cruise boats have remained moored to the banks for over a week, hotelier Daniel Damian said at meeting in the southern town of Tulcea.

The industry has written a letter to Prime Minister Calin Tariceanu demanding subsidies and tax breaks to compensate them for their losses.

New cases of suspected bird flu emerged in Romania Tuesday as the country teamed up with neighbouring Moldova and Ukraine to fight a disease that is spreading fear and has already hit the tourism industry hard.

The deadly Asian strain of avian influenza, H5N1, was confirmed to be Romania on Saturday, two days after tests showed it had spread to Turkey. The same strain has killed 60 people in Asia over the past three years.
