            Coronavirus Covid-19 will reduce the number of tourists worldwide by 30% this year. Many countries in the world, including Italy and Iceland, are severely affected by the pandemic.              </p><div>
            <p style="margin-left:0cm; margin-right:0cm">The UN World Tourism Organization had previously estimated that the number of tourists would decline by 3%, but was later forced to adjust the forecast.

The pandemic is threatening millions of jobs, but the direct losses to the tourism industry could amount to between € 276 billion and € 415 billion, a third of last year’s revenue.

Meanwhile, journalists have called many famous European resorts “ghost towns”. For example, the Italian Cortina d Ampeco ski resort usually has 15,000 tourists during this time of year, but currently has only 5,000 locals.

Meanwhile, picturesque Icelandic media say that there is probably only one tourist left in the country – a 70-year-old US citizen, Catherine Florio. She does not intend to return to her homeland for the time being, because the risk of illness is even greater.

CONTEXT:

With the spread of the new Covid-19 virus worldwide, the World Health Organization has recognized that the disease has reached a global pandemic level. Many countries around the world have severe restrictions in place – mass events, closed borders, schools and other institutions.
