Abstract
In mid-December 2019, a novel and infectious coronavirus (COVID-19) struck Wuhan, the most populous city in central China. Akin to the rigorous acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) that emerged in 2003, COVID-19 is an airborne illness that is highly transmissible between humans. Immediately after the Chinese regime shared information about the virus publicly in tardy January 2020, more stringent preventive measures, such as community quarantines and interim business closures, swept across Chinese cities. The local outbreak rapidly developed into an emerging public health crisis to the extent that World Health Organization (WHO) anon declared it as an unprecedented ecumenical pandemic. In March, Europe and the Cumulated States have successively become the epicenter of the pandemic, and many countries imposed restrictions on human mobility. As of June, 2021, infections were substantiated in 200 countries/territories/areas and 26 cruise/ naval ships, total 180,796,678 confirmed cases and more than 3,917,369 deaths, and an exponentially growing number of suspected cases around the globe. Infectious disease outbreaks, including coronavirus, greatly jeopardize the tourism industry given its reliance on human mobility. The Chinese hotel market witnessed a 71% year-over-year decline in occupancy on 23–26 January [1].  The paper compares the impacts of COVID-19 to previous epidemic/pandemics and other types of global crises and explores how the pandemic may change society, the economy, and tourism.
