Travelling has been the most common desire among humans in the past few decades. The sites of attraction across the globe were easily accessible, though it was about to change.
A few months back no one has thought that they are going to be stranded at their respective place. With the arrival of the coronavirus, people are forced to cancel their respective plans of travel and hideout and adapt isolation.
The virus has made it difficult for people to travel domestic or international. With the announcement from central government regarding visa cancellation until the indefinite time, the tourism industry is at risk of meeting with huge losses and it will act as a threat to over 50 million people associated with the industry globally.
The virus is going to affect the itinerary of people coming from different backgrounds. There will be a broad category of people who will be facing the consequences of the pandemic virus.
The people who have been saving to visit their dream destination during the coming summer are bound to drop their plans and follow the guidelines laid down by the government.
It will leave them with heartbreak and sorrow, but this is the need of the hour.
Although, I am very hopeful for fellow travellers as this lockdown will be enhancing the beauty of their dreamland and once the virus gets to settle down, travellers will get to see a newer version of it.
They are the people who will be suffering from the pandemic and will be paying a huge price as a repercussion of the travel ban.
This is going to affect the trade and the buyers or suppliers of the respective business are bound to cancel the contracts and it will incur some huge holes in the pocket of the people connected with the business.
There are around 2 lakhs students from India, who opt to travel abroad for their studies and projects related to it.
They have a very uncertain future as of now. The government official has advised citizens to refrain from unnecessary travelling, students still do not have a clear picture as their future depends on the guidelines from the government of two countries.
The first is their own and the other is where they have planned to study. Students are hopeful of getting a positive outcome before the intake period starts.
Airlines and other modes of transport and Hotel chains.
This category combines a huge share of the tourism industry and it has been already predicted by the respective sectors that there will be a huge loss that they are bound to tackle.
With the announcement of visa cancellation, an organisation like MakeMyTrip has announced to deal with around $10 million losses over the next few seasons.
Everyone is hopeful that the situation will come under the control and things will get back to normal. People have this in-born urge to travel, I am optimistic that it will make them fly again.
