Instead of earning money from visitors, Hawaii is now paying them to leave for the safety of both residences and tourists amid the coronavirus outbreak

While you need to spend around 80000 rupees for a tour to Hawaii, the US Pacific state is now giving money to its visitors, including the flight ticket, in order to leave the island due to coronavirus outbreak in the state. According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, the state is willing to compensate any tourists a whopping $25,000 (Rs 19 lakh) if they deny taking the 14-day self-isolation on the island and fly back to their origins. They also added that the state’s Visitor Aloha Society, which functions with tourist support like medical aid or theft, will be in charge of arranging the deal.

Hawai'i State Attorney General Clare Connors said on a local news agency that sending tourists back to their countries is one of the state's efforts to keep the region safe from the health crisis:

"The ability to return people quickly to their airports of origin during the coronavirus outbreak greatly assists law enforcement's ability to ensure the success of our statewide emergency measures." 

At the moment, 19 Hawaii travelers have been sent back to their hometown safely with a $25,000 expense. On the contrary, violators who do not follow the quarantine rule will be prosecuted and have to pay a penalty charge.
