Safest countries in the world to visit in 2020
These are predicted to be the safest countries in the world to visit in 2020
(CNN) — For those who are planning a holiday for next year and wondering which countries are the safest, a risk map published by an organization specializing in travel security may be of help.
International SOS, a travel security services company, has released its annual Travel Risk Map for the forthcoming year.
Based on medical and travel security risks -- including infectious diseases and political violence -- its color-coordinated map has five categories, ranging from 'insignificant' to 'extreme' risk.
In its predictions for 2020, the safest countries to travel to are concentrated more heavily in the northern hemisphere.
They are Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Slovenia, Luxembourg and Switzerland.
