rather vague, people aren't going to be checking out since they have nowhere to go

 

also what does at risk mean - foreigners ?

another branch of government wanting to be heard, this really has nothing to do with TAT unless they have been absorbed into the Health Ministry

 

TAT - not much going on is there as far as tourism is concerned

These should do wonders for the nature. The all destroying hordes are gone. How's that for a positive spin, TAT? Maybe you could start counting the fish as tourists.
