Because of Covid-19 not only lots of people lost their lives but covid has also create a negative affect on global economy. Various industries got affected by this pandemic. But the tourism industry got the most negative affect of this pandemic and lockdown. all the associated sectors such as hospitality, travel agencies and tour operator, all kinds of transportation service suffers a lot.
according to FInancial Express tourism industry faced a loss of 22 billion USD and almost 50 million people related to travel industry lost their jobs. There is no difference in India also.
From beginning of 2020 to end of the year the scenario was still same. Countries closed their borders. Flights are grounded. Trains were stopped. Public Transports were not operating. Hotels, pubs, restaurants were closed. The entire year was like that.
But now there are some hopes. Countries are getting vaccines. Lots of countries are reducing travel ban restrictions. But still traveling to other countries is not easy like before. So, for now we can do one thing that is supporting or local Indian tourism industry. We can start travelling in our own state as well as in our own country if we follow the rules provided by our Government like wearing mask when we are meeting someone or travelling to someplace, use sanitizer, try to wear and carry clean cloths then it is not that tough to travel inside our country. We will also get a relief from our lockdown suffocating life and the tourism industry also get a chance to survive. If we travel within our country then the cost will also be less. This things are applicable for restaurants and pubs also, if we follow the rules then we will be able to save a lot of jobs and also can create new opportunities for some new business and jobs.
whenever you will travel to someplace after lockdown try to buy from local markets or shops and try to take lots of travel photographs and post them on social media in this way you can promote local tourism and can encourage other people to travel.
A small effort from all of us can create a lot of changes. But of course first check your own health and financial condition and then try to help these industries.
