One year has passed since the paralysis of tourism due to the coronavirus

March 14, 2020 is the day the tourism industry suffered the pandemic, especially in Spain, which was declared a State of Alert. As the calendar progresses, anniversaries that mark milestones in the evolution of the pandemic follow.

  • Since we started hearing about a virus emerging in China and it seems to be a long way off, December 8 has been a year.
  • On January 31, Spain discovered its first official infectious disease, especially in the Canary Islands.
  • February 1 is the anniversary of the first visitor alert to the “coronavirus tsunami”.
  • On the weekend of March 13-15, it was announced that the tsunami had dealt a severe blow to Spain and Spain declared a state of alert.

What happened on that date?

The events of “13 (Friday)” of 2020 were so serious that the Spanish government was forced to order the declaration of a “state of alarm” on March 14. The report was published in the BOE at 10:00 p.m. that day, with immediate effect. In this way, on December 15, Spain woke up in a state of alarm and imposed family confinement on the entire country in response to the health emergency caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Also on the same weekend, cruise ships and airlines paralyzed their routes, travel agencies froze their sales, hotels began to close and send employees home. Only then did we realize that the global tourism industry is suffering and the departure of global tourism has begun. March 20-26 is the time to stagger these hotels.

Since then, despite timid recovery attempts, the holiday and leisure sectors have not had a chance to breathe. All hopes are pinned on the vaccination process, which may allow the so-called “happiness industry” to be revived in the summer of 2021.
