In the face of the COVID-19 crisis and the concern and uncertainty about the economic future of the hotel industry, it is necessary to create a system to create an easy system to support quarantined guests, providing services necessary to maintain their security during the pandemic. Greece is so far considered a safe country and there are still visitors willing to fly to the Greek islands. There is a problem arising after the governments announcements about actions that will make future tourists willing to travel safe to the Greek islands. There is a need to help quarantined tourists connect with the local society and obtain the every day goods to support living.
Pan-EU Hackathon #EUvsVirus

The solution is to create an application where the guest can easily access and be able to obtain the services they need. Each one will be asked the health protocol questions to find out who has symptoms and to isolate them to avoid massive infections. The app is built completely using open source technology. We decided to use Glibe as our tools to create easy and fast our app.
Impact on Tourism
Coronavirus is already a global problem, it is here to stay for a while. The impact on the world’s economies has been very serious, and the tourism industry also suffers from it, so we must work on strategies that help mitigate this crisis.People will be afraid to travel for a while but then when they see that there is adequate security they will be able to do it normally again. This will be like when the 9/11 attacks occurred, people did not dare to travel, but when they see that there is strong security, everything changes.
