TRIBUNBATAM.id - Corona virus outbreak is predicted to make the number of tourist arrivals to Singapore drop between 25 to 30 percent.
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.
China accounts for around 20 percent of tourist arrivals to Singapore, followed by Indonesia and India.
"We have around 1,600 Mandarin-speaking tour guides and their lives are also affected because most are freelancers," Tan said.
Tourists from other countries also canceled visits to Singapore and other countries as a result of the outbreak of the corona virus.
South Korea and Kuwait are some countries that advise their citizens to minimize or delay travel to Singapore and other countries in the region.
