  1. More than 197 million travel & tourism jobs could be lost, WTTC says

    Back in March, the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) said the COVID-19 pandemic could cost 50 million jobs globally. Just shy of three months later and the WTTC has upped its estimate: More than 197 million jobs could be lost in the global travel and tourism sector if barriers to global travel, such as blanket anti-travel advisories and quarantine measures remain in place.
