Lonely Planet: Uzbekistan is reopening to international tourists with a big promise: if they become infected with COVID-19 during their trip, they will receive US$3000 in compensation.
The national guarantee protects travellers who visit Uzbekistan on a group tour that uses a local tour operator.
Gov.uz decision to quickly lockdown in mid-March means the country has one of the world’s lowest coronavirus fatality rates, with just 19 reported deaths in a population of almost 33 million. The country is famous for its ornately tiled Silk Road architecture, and tourism has hugely increased in the last few years thanks to a new visa-free scheme that’s available to citizens of more than 80 countries. https://www.lonelyplanet.com/articles/uzbekistan-covid-free-guarantee
