COVID-19 Casts Dark Shadow Over Zimbabwe's Tourism Industry

Tourism players are worried that the outbreak of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) that continues to spread worldwide will have a huge negative impact on the industry.

Hospitality Industry Association of Zimbabwe (HAZ) Victoria Falls chapter chairman Arnold Musonza revealed that the industry has recorded cancellations of bookings and trips by international travellers. He said:

There is not much movement in terms of supplies, which we get from far afield like China and it’s worrying to us as an industry because we have even had cancellations with a lot of clients asking for cancellations or postponement of their trips.

Musonza appealed for people to rely on official information and not follow “untruths” that are circulated on social media.

He urged the media not to sensationalise reports about COVID-19 as this may result in the collapse of the industry.
