"The flow of tourists to the Dominican Republic from North America and Europe has declined amid reports of the death of tourists. From June to September, 170 thousand less visitors came from the United States," the website writes. The material also notes that on average each tourist spends 1.2 thousand dollars for a vacation.

More than 10 American tourists died in the Dominican Republic from April to June 2019 from sudden health problems. The likely cause of the death of several people could be falsified alcohol. Dominican authorities say tourists died of natural causes. The FBI has joined in the investigation of the series of mysterious deaths.

Against the backdrop of negative media reports, the country's authorities in July 2019 announced the introduction of new security measures in the resorts of the republic. The measures include presence of a 911 call button in each hotel room, and expanded network of "emergency" tourist assistance centers, for example, on Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana. In addition, food and drink in hotels, as well as the qualifications and availability of a license for medical staff, will be carefully checked.
