Zimbabwe floods Victoria Falls with vaccines to help tourism
HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls usually teems with tourists who come to marvel at the roaring Zambezi River as it tumbles down more than 350 feet (108 meters) to the gorge below, sending up a mist that is visible from miles away.
“The Smoke That Thunders” – the English translation of what the waterfall is called in the Sotho language – is still mighty, but the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced visitors to a trickle. Ordinarily, Victoria Falls attracts 350,000 tourists a year, but their numbers have dropped to almost none as a result of travel restrictions.
