Tourism spots across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will remain closed throughout the Eidul Fitr holidays to avoid gatherings due to the coronavirus pandemic, Labour and Culture Minister Shaukat Yousafzai said.

The minister cited health experts’ advice of social distancing for the government’s decision to keep the attraction spots closed. He was speaking on SAMAA TV’s morning show Naya Din on Thursday.

Naran, Kaghan, Swat and Murree are some of the most visited places in KP where locals as well as foreigners come visit.

“We’ve decided to keep all tourism spots closed at least till Eid because we don’t want people to come in or go out [of the province] frequently since that may worsen the [coronavirus] situation,” said Yousafzai.

He said all hotels are being closed anyways on Eid so opening the attractions wouldn’t have made much sense.

The minister indicated that after Eid, the KP government will frame a strategy to jump start its tourism industry that has been affected due to the pandemic.
