UNWTO Secretary General praises Australian justice ruling in Novak Djokovic case
"Health safety is a priority but we must avoid to allow it to become a source of discrimination" Zurab Pololikashvili said on his Twitter
At this time, the advance of the Omicron variant is generating changes in the sanitary measures that many states have been applying. With the exponential increase in cases that do not lead to a saturation of intensive care beds, each country is reviewing which policies to apply from now on.
Zurab Pololikashvili, UNWTO Secretary General, has given his vision in this regard by taking sides in the case of Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, whom the Australian justice has just released to participate in the open in that country. The official stated on his Twitter: "Very happy to hear about the judicial decision in Australia to release Novak Djokovic, possibly allowing him to play at Australian Open2022!. Sport is a true motivation for tourism. Health safety is a priority but we must avoid to allow it to become a source of discrimination".
