In a bid to revive its Covid-ravaged tourism sector, one of the most important sources of income of the state, the Kerala government has now rolled out a unique but efficient 'Bio-Bubble' system to help tourists enjoy their stay more safely amid the pandemic. Bio-bubbles are sanitized, safe and secure environments, where people within them, likely to come into contact with tourists, are vaccinated, a Kerala Tourism department release said here on Tuesday.

"The protective ring of the Bio-bubble will see that tourists landing in any airport in Kerala meet only vaccinated ground staff. From the airport they can drive to their chosen destinations in cabs, provided by accredited tour operators, whose drivers are all vaccinated. The same goes for the hotels, resorts or homestays they stay during their holiday, where the staff are vaccinated", it said.
