Recently, the world is facing a novel coronavirus. The virus, called Covid-19, which was first seen in Wuhan, China and started to spread rapidly to other countries, has come to a halt all around the world due to its high spreading rate and being a deadly virus. In the face of the situation that has turned into a universal public health crisis, some countries have reduced their commercial relations with other countries and even international travel restrictions have been introduced in many countries. Since almost all countries close their borders and stop international travel, international tourism activities have also lost their dynamism. In this study, the first effects of the novel coronavirus with tourism were tried to be determined. For this purpose, the count of foreign tourists coming to Hong Kong from some countries and continents in January 2020 was compared with the data of January of the last five years with the help of graphics. As a result of the research, it has been determined that the count of foreign tourists visiting Hong Kong in January 2020 has decreased significantly compared to January of the last five years.
Son günlerde tüm dünya yeni tip bir koronavirüsle karşı karşıya kalmıştır. İlk kez Çin'in Wuhan kentinde görülen ve diğer ülkelere hızla yayılmaya başlayan kovid-19 adlı virüsün gerek yayılma hızının yüksek olması gerekse ölümcül bir virüs olma özelliği taşıması nedeniyle tüm dünyada hayat neredeyse durma noktasına gelmiştir. Evrensel bir halk sağlığı krizi haline dönüşen durum karşında bazı ülkeler diğer ülkelerle olan ticari ilişkilerini azaltmış ve hatta pek çok ülke de uluslararası seyahat kısıtlamaları getirilmiştir. Hemen hemen tüm ülkelerin birbirlerine sınırlarını kapatması ve uluslararası seyahatleri durdurması nedeniyle özellikle uluslararası turizm faaliyetleri de dinamikliğini yitirmiştir. Bu çalışmada yeni tip koronavirüsün turizme olan ilk etkileri tespit edilmeye çalışılmıştır. Bu amaçla 2020 yılının Ocak ayında bazı ülke ve kıtalardan Hong Kong'a gelen yabancı turist sayıları, son beş yılın Ocak ayı verileri ile grafikler yardımıyla kıyaslanmaya çalışılmıştır. Araştırma sonucunda Hong Kong'u 2020 yılının Ocak ayında ziyaret eden yabancı turist sayısının son beş yılın Ocak aylarına göre ciddi oranlarda azaldığı tespit edilmiştir.
