After the long-time lock-downs from the Pandemic Covid-19 to the entire world the tourism industry is trying it’s best to revive. Therefore, the several countries have opened airspace and borders for the tourism industry to get back on the road. Democratic Republic of Congo, recently had opened gates of the Virunga National Park to welcome the tourists interested in mountain gorilla treks and the trek to the summit of mount Nyiragongo.
Recently on May 22, 2021, the Nyiragongo volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo erupted. Hundreds of thousands of people experienced the aftershocks, including contaminated water and structural damage.
