MetadataShow full item record
Whale shark watching in Oslob town in Cebu has resumed as the province reopened its doors to tourists in a bid to revive its struggling economy amid the new coronavirus disease pandemic. But from around 1,000 tourists, the number of people who visit Oslob to see the whale sharks had gone down to only eight to 10 daily since Aug. 1, said Mayor Jun Tumulak. “Of course, the number is very far from what we had before the pandemic. But at least, we have guests. It is better than having none. In that way, our local tourism would not die,” he told the Inquirer.
