Where COVID-19 Cases are Decreasing (and Where Cases are Increasing)


Where are COVID-19 Cases Decreasing? As anyone who's taken a cursory glance at the news knows, the COVID-19 Delta variant has caused COVID-19 cases to increase throughout the U.S. and many other destinations. Even countries that locked down hard, such as Australia and New Zealand, have seen more than twice as many new COVID-19 cases over the past 2 weeks, compared to the two weeks prior to that. So let's get to the good news: where are COVID-19 cases decreasing? Since this is a luxury travel site, we've focused on destinations where we actually send clients.
