Paris is known as one of the world's leading tourist destinations, where many tourists come from all over the world, and some will even define it as the best tourist destination in the world.
However, in recent times the French capital has been dealing with a serious blow – the flea plague. This phenomenon is expanding to cinemas, public transportation, private homes and many other places throughout the city, causing quite a few tourists to feel uncomfortable. Emmanuel Grégoir, deputy mayor of Paris, referred to the flea infestation, saying that "no one is immune and it is impossible to guarantee that there will be no contact."

In recent days, quite a few documentations of the same bedbugs have surfaced on public transportation and in the city's cinemas, when they were photographed walking on the seats on which the spectators are supposed to sit.
Following the flea infestation in the city, the French government announced that it would take action to address the phenomenon. In about a year, the Olympics are expected to be held in Paris, and during the year quite a few more international events are expected to bring millions of tourists with them to the city, and as of now it is unclear when and how the difficult problem facing the beloved city will be dealt with.
