The European electronic bulletin Preferente, reproduced this Monday elements concerning the collapse of travel in the aforementioned area.

The report points out that the value of the companies in the region suffered a strong setback as soon as the Austrian government’s decision to ban tourism in that country for at least three weeks became known.

The fear is based not only in Austria, but above all in neighboring Germany, whose SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection figures are almost as worrying as those in Austria.

British Airways Airlines, which has a marginal interest in Austria, saw its shares decline 4.7 percent.

Meanwhile, German airline Lufthansa showed concern about the impact of the disease on its direct business and its subsidiary Austrian Airways, which was hit with a sharp drop in its stock market value, falling from €6.17 a share to €5.90.

This is because the infection figures are particularly serious in Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, the Balkans and Ukraine.

Germany also has worrying figures that continue to rise.

In almost all these cases, the problem points to the reluctance of countless citizens to be vaccinated, the source points out.
