Wealthy tourists return to Maldives for maskless holidays

Money can’t buy you a pass on Covid-19 getting it or passing o to others. Self-delusion and “me, me, me” are powerful narcotics!

It’s a chance to catch some winter sun in a stunning tropical location and temporarily forget the coronavirus pandemic. After months of closure, the Maldives has reopened to visitors again, or at least those with a negative Covid-19 test and quite a bit of cash to spare. Wealthy visitors are flocking to the South Asian islands for a luxury getaway and the opportunity to take off their face masks at last. Our France 2 colleagues report, with FRANCE 24’s Emerald Maxwell.
