What are the safest countries to travel to right now?
The safest countries in the world of COVID-19 are those with few cases of COVID-19.
At the moment, few countries still record daily deaths and cases above 100, save for nations such as the UK, US, Russia and Brazil.
Many better-off nations initially qualified as some of the hardest hit, and the site European Best Destinations has drawn up a list of those least affected Brits can now visit.
Austria has also fared well in the battle against COVID-19, with 10 times fewer cases than other countries.
Vienna is the nation’s pride and joy, which caters to all kinds of people, including history fanatics, youth, and families.
While favoured by people for a Christmas vacation, Vienna makes a luxurious holiday destination all year round.
Malta’s pint-sized, easily controllable nature has put it in an envious place during the coronavirus crisis, with 50 times fewer cases than the rest of Europe.
The nation’s situation now makes it a viable destination for sun-deprived Brits, who can journey to its Riviera or beaches this summer.
Those hoping for a unique experience can travel to Malta’s neighbouring island of Gozo, which is even smaller and ideally suited for nature lovers.
