tourist, service, COVID-19


The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time and the biggest challenge we have faced since World War II. Since its appearance in Asia at the end of last year, the virus has spread to all continents. In this context, we want in our article to present and analyze the impact of COVID 19 on tourist services, an area very affected by the pandemic we are currently going through. In Romania, starting from the studies elaborated abroad, the specialists focused on the macroeconomic impact of the COVID 19 crisis on the tourist services in our country and analyzed two scenarios - S1 - quasi-blockage of tourism activities for three months and Scenario S2 - the extension of the blockade to four months. Presenting factual data on the evolution of specific indicators in the tourism industry recorded during the COVID pandemic compared to the same period last year in Romania, this paper is intended, if necessary, as an alarm signal for the need to systemically address the effects of this pandemic, as a starting point for substantiating viable strategies necessary to relaunch the world economy for the benefit of us all.
