The coronavirus could cut 50 million tourism jobs. The tourism industry could become 25% smaller. People are not travelling. More countries are closing borders and asking people to self-quarantine. A tourism expert said the pandemic is a big threat to the tourism industry and to those who work in it.

Tourism provides 10% of the world's jobs. It is one of the hardest hit industries. Korean Air is worried about its survival. Qantas cut international flights by 25%. World-famous sites are deserted, so restaurants and cafes could go out of business. Many hotel rooms will be empty for months. Tourism could take 10 months to recover.
