I know it's "just" tourism, but it is an industry on which millions depend for their livelihood and it's nice to travel. I was preparing my first trip home in over 2 years and now it is in serious jeopardy. Damn.......

Before the pandemic, the tourism sector accounted for about 10 percent of the world's gross domestic product and jobs.

And accounted for over 8% of total global man-made greenhouse gas emissions.

Staycations and occasional special trips abroad need to become the norm rather than the rush for ever cheaper foreign travel.

How about the cost of lives ?

Whats more valuable to you protecting loved ones and family members ?

Or bringing them a deadly virus for the holiday season.

If you care so much then by all means stay home and don't travel .

protect those you cherish

Send the bill to China, they've trashed the world with this, and their catastrophically deceitful ways.

The free democratic countries of the world and their governments must find ways of making China pay for this.
