World heritage site, Mount Fanjing, in southwest China's Guizhou Province, exempted tickets for local medical workers aiding Hubei Province, the center of the coronavirus outbreak in the country, for a lifetime, sources with the scenic zone said.
The tourist site has also made sightseeing buses and cableway services in the scenic area free for these medical workers, according to the developer of the site.
A total of 1,443 medical workers of Guizhou Province were sent to Hubei to help with the fight against the virus. Since Tuesday, Guizhou's medical teams have been departing Hubei as the outbreak has been subdued.
Mount Fanjing was reopened on Feb. 28. The tourist attraction has carried out strict epidemic prevention and control measures while resuming operation, including offering online ticket booking service, disinfecting public spaces and facilities, checking visitors' temperatures and masks.
Boasting rich natural resources and high vegetation coverage, Mount Fanjing was listed as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site in 2018.
Guizhou's top-rated 420 tourist sites, including Mount Fanjing, are made ticket-free for medical workers across the country from the restart of operation to the end of this year.
