OVERVIEW OF COVID-19 IN TOURISM INDUSTRY
Due to enhanced globalization, the ripple effect of the COVID-19 pandemic has echoed through every curve of the globe, resulting to the loss of lives and jobs, as well as the drop in general budgetary activities. The domino impact of the virus has caused incalculable pain and misfortunes to many individuals and organizations from all edges of the world.
Bloomberg has predicted that this pandemic could fetch the world $2.7 trillion, equal to the UK economy. Still, the influence has not been uniform across all industries. For instance, Information Communications Technology (ICT) and its associated industries have not felt the pressure as much as other industries.
COVID-19 pandemic has caused an extensive disturbance in socioeconomic activities including the tourism sector. Several countries in the world including Nepal had imposed travel restriction and lock-down to combat COVID-19. The study results revealed that the tourist flow was progressing regularly until recently. In the previous year (2019), the tourists’ number was extending from January till March, while in the current year, announced as Visit Nepal 2020, the number abruptly dwindled since March though it was reasonably good at the beginning of the year 2020.
Now the lock-down is over and the situation is getting better politically as the extensive curfew is coming to an end. Still, some precautions are taken very seriously to balance the past case and event scenarios. Though going back to normal life is not possible at this time, many industries not only in Nepal but throughout the world are working for it. Although restaurants and hotels are now authorized to open, some businesses, such as cinemas, salons, and spas are still closed because of their crowdedness. Trekking and mountaineering are also permitted, according to the announcement.
