As markets around the world reel from the turmoil of the COVID-19 coronavirus, companies of all sizes are feeling the effects - perhaps none more so than those in and adjacent to the travel industry. The crisis is forcing companies to reevaluate many aspects of their financial plans for the foreseeable future and - particularly for those operating in the B2C space - to reassess their digital marketing strategies such as paid search.

Global hospitality data company STR has released hotel industry reports for the week ending March 21 and in nearly all markets, the metrics are continuing to get worse due to the ongoing pandemic of the coronavirus COVID-19. The reports are based on data from 68,000 properties and 9.1 million rooms around the world. Compared to 2019 figures, occupancy is down as much as 96% in Italy to 68% down in China, 67% down in the United Kingdom, 59% down in the United States and 48% down in Singapore. As the first market to deal with the coronavirus, China is also the first to show signs of stabilization. About 87% of the country’s hotels are now open – up from a low of 40% - and occupancy is starting to turn in a positive direction, to just over 20% for the week ending March 21 from a low of 10% in February.

Since first being identified in late-2019 in the Wuhan region of China, coronavirus COVID-19 has spread to dozens of countries around the world.

The outbreak is inevitably having an enormous impact on the travel industry, ranging from hotel and cruise ship quarantines to airlines halting flights in some regions.
