TRIBUNBATAM.id - Corona virus outbreak is predicted to make the number of tourist arrivals to Singapore drop between 25 to 30 percent.

The Singapore tourism authority also said, the country's tourism industry was faced with a worse impact than the SARS pandemic outbreak in 2003 ago.

Reporting from Bloomberg, Tuesday (02/11/2020), Singapore Tourism Board chief executive Keith Tan revealed, Singapore lost an estimated 18,000 to 20,000 foreign tourists per day. The situation could be worse if the corona virus hasn't subsided in the near future. 

"The main complaint I hear at the moment is" help "from the tourism industry as a whole," Tan said.

He said the condition was not surprising, because China made the biggest contribution in the number of tourist arrivals to Singapore.

China accounts for around 20 percent of tourist arrivals to Singapore, followed by Indonesia and India.

Prohibition of tourist arrivals in the group and a ban on entry for Chinese citizens applied by Singapore according to Tan can cause a drop in tourism revenue sources.

"We have around 1,600 Mandarin-speaking tour guides and their lives are also affected because most are freelancers," Tan said.
