Due to this pandemic, tourism became badly affected.
Several airports have closed, and companies relying on tourism are essentially
dead. The good news is that vaccines are already rolling out, and things are
getting back to normal. More
people will feel confident to travel, and there will be fewer risks of an
outbreak. The problem is that there could be another risk of a health crisis in
the future. No one expected this pandemic to happen, and it got out of control
in an instant. Another health issue may arise and it will keep us locked in our
houses again. While it’s possible, it’s not something to worry about due to
We already know what to do
When this pandemic started, no one knew what to do. We
were left reeling due to our lack of understanding about what this virus can
do, or how to treat it. Over time, we became more knowledgeable. Medical
experts found ways
to deal with the virus. Treatments became readily available. It also
extends to government officials. At first, everyone scrambled because no one
knew the appropriate steps to take. Many people hesitated to follow protocols.
After a while, leaders learned from effective practices. It became easier to prevent
major outbreaks from spreading. Effective penalties were also in place. If
another health crisis arises, it will be more manageable. The last major
pandemic that the world saw was centuries ago, so it’s understandable that
everyone struggled to contain it.
People feel comfortable following health protocols
At first, several health guidelines were difficult to
implement. There was resistance everywhere. Even rules that weren’t supposed to
be controversial became divisive. However, after a while, more people felt
comfortable with these rules. From mask wearing to social distancing, the rules
became less controversial. It also helps that more scientific evidence came out
regarding their effectiveness.
We already saw the effects of violating health
It took a while before the vaccine was discovered.
Within that period, thousands of people around the world already died.
Therefore, the fear of getting sick or losing someone encouraged people to
follow the health guidelines. Even those who have to travel to other places had
no choice but to follow the rules set by the local governments. While there
still difficult for some to follow, the implementation got better.
We can take steps to recover
Apart from the health crisis, we also have to deal
with the aftermath of this pandemic. Once we look into the financial effects,
the situation becomes even more dire. The good thing is that we will learn how
to take steps to recover financially. Even companies relying on the tourism
industry will also learn how to adjust. If faced with the same situation in the
future, it won’t have a devastating effect anymore.
The future is uncertain, and we don’t even know when
industry will recover. The good thing is that we learned a lot from what
happened, and we will be more cautious in the future.
