What will be the economic impact of COVID-19 (and should we care)?
The travel industry, which accounts for millions of jobs, has been hit particularly hard by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
In 2018, the travel and tourism industry accounted for 319 million jobs worldwide. Most airlines have cut their flying capacity by at least 75% and announced widespread staff redundancies. Flybe, a UK regional carrier, was one of the first airlines to collapse due to this crisis.
