a city relying on tourism for and with laws like this one and all the big hotels shut down i shot this exclusive video recently from my paddle board on biscayne bay right off the mandarin oriental hotel in brickell key which is usually packed this time of year it's outdoor event space hosting weddings and business functions instead it was eerily quiet and desolate as florida moves into its reopening phases there are questions about whether or not the 1000 figures are complete the so-called architect of florida's code 1000 tracking web page said she was fired after going public with her. about florida department of house commitment to accessibility and transparency state officials say she was insubordinate but the miami herald and other media outlets sued the state over its refusal recently to release data about covert 1000 cases and deaths in nursing homes and other long term care facilities still florida is moving forward with reopening and after 2 months of being locked down residents here are going out to enjoy the warm sun
7:24 am
perhaps one of the biggest questions now though will the covert 1000 disease cast a dark and deadly shadow over the sunshine state in the weeks and months to come for our t.v. john hardy. well just like in florida there's growing frustration among countries which depend on tourism the big question being how to reopen for business with the pandemic still ravaging the world essentially countries like italy spain and greece one busy beaches again for the summer season but the tide might be against them as. healer reports. missing travel and in need of a break from this crisis well with some thought is now reopened i found myself thinking about a summer getaway so let's try a test run and see what post corona travel joyce awaits us. first stop the airport make are excited already it is the 1st time you've been farther than 20 minutes from your house and what do you see queues socially
7:25 am
distance of course but they are everywhere queues for the new electronic check it queues of travelers stopping every 20 seconds to sanitize their hands queues for temperature checks queues of people board in groups of 10 and if you'll fly out of dubai you might need to book an extra week off because that during coronavirus testing at some check ins bit of a buzz kill. well that you survived he and this checks in queues so now you're on board and the cabin crew appears to be extras for me black america scene in full has my gear is not talking about something to be worried about well i don't look to the stewards for officers also there will be no pillows no blankets those for luxuries of pre-code that travel a new not true though no middle seat all passive aggressive elbowing or leg room bottles that all rest is yours. so
7:26 am

7:27 am
a joke i'm not joking us as you read and you find yourself in some side if i see what is classmates you now have to weave between tool plexiglas sheets to get to your old designated lunges or elbow to show we've tried to come up with a solution so that people can go to the beach the idea is to use a modular wall has a separating wall for gyms and hairdressing salon between prions corrido as well as for swimming pools and waterparks or an office in our you forgot to book you'll beat slot so no time for you today all he could see at 20 bracelets counting the number of beach coas also if you're hungry there is a strict dress code. and all this just sounds too much for you then that is another option the young industry has used this global pandemic to advertise itself as the safest summer option which would obviously have been
