>Have you any statistics here?

Why would a website for travellers have (or need) such 'statistics'?

>How much corona virus affect to the traveler?

It is surely obvious to anyone who follows the news that Covid-19 is having a massive impact on travellers throughout the world. Some countries have banned visitors from other countries, some insist that arrivals from other countries immediately go into quarantine, many businesses have stopped or massively reduced international travel for their employees, many people have cancelled flights and trips...

Even if you managed to leave your own country you could get stuck in the arrival country in some sort of quarantine. This means you could end up spending more money than you planned for!

Any country you intend to visit look over some of the expat forums and read the local newspapers. Most major cities popular with foreign tourists usually have a publication in English.

Right now, until things settle down, it might be better to stay home or visit things you can drive to and drive back.

Isn't the daily "body count" and constant barrage of TV breaking news interruptions enough???

Up to you.

I agree, find the hidden gems at home. They are there, just look. i have found some amazing places around my home town that only a few people knew about. The world may be your oyster, but look for the pearls.

Considering the current situation of the travel sector due to the pandemic travel has reduced to minimum worldwide. This is sad but we should fight this virus together and save our earth.

My ticket from MED-LHE has been canceled due to coronavirus. I booked this ticket from -snip- I called the airline helpline and they told me that they have passed the remarks for a full refund. but when I call to -snip- helpline they told me that they will not give me full refund. after all, they didn't agree to give me a full refund even the airline (PIA) agreed to give full refund. so I have loss my 150$. Corona has ruined all my plannings.
