The United Nations (UN) in its brief announced that the crisis might heavily strike the world’s tourism (some US$1 trillion loss).
The semi-autonomous Kashmir is among the hammered tourism. India has imposed severe security limits in the region after the coronavirus pandemic. Since the lockdown in the month of March, its tourism industry is seriously declining.
Badly hit by the virus, Kashmir's tourism is enduring a financial devastation which might need years to fix.
With reportedly 70,000 cases of coronavirus and a death toll of 1,084, the region has faced a challenge. It is estimated that over 600,000 jobs have been quit in the wake of India’s resolution to annul Kashmir's special status since August 2019. According to Faiz Bakhshi, a businessman and former secretary general of the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCC&I), the number of people who have lost their jobs is uncertain.
