One million tourism jobs lost per day
WORLD One million jobs are being lost every day in the travel and tourism sector due to the sweeping effect of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).

The vast closure of hotels, suspension of the majority of international and domestic airline flights, cessation of cruise lines and growing global travel bans are having a catastrophic domino effect hitting huge numbers of suppliers worldwide. Small and medium sized businesses at every level within the sector such as tour operators, travel agents and sole-traders, are especially vulnerable. The organisation, which is already in talks with over 75 governments around the world, has called for countries to urgently do more to intervene to make clearer how businesses can access potentially life-saving loans, and tax breaks, to prevent them from imminent collapse.
