Let's imagine for a moment that Corona is completely vanished in 6 months. What would be its impact on the travel/tourism industry in 2021 - more specifically, the number of travellers?
There are 2 line of thoughts I'm hearing on it:
1. Tourists Will Decrease:
Even though Corona might go away, the "Fear" of catching such diseases has become permanent for some people. Not to mention the financial hole 2020 pandemic has created.
2. Tourists Will Increase:
Everyone who had plans to travel in 2020 but couldn't, all of them would pursue in 2021 so 2021 will see the surge because of the combined travelers of 2021+2020. An additional learning of pandemic "live life to its fullest, anything can happen anytime" would further fuel the growth.
Which one do you think is most likely to happen?
Also explain the reason.
