UN: Coronavirus Pandemic Causes 65% Drop in International Travel

联合国:疫情致国际游客人数下降65%

A new report says the coronavirus pandemic caused a 65 percent decrease in international travel during the first six months of 2020.

一份新的报告称,新冠病毒大流行导致2020年上半年的国际旅行减少了65%。

The World Tourism Organization, an agency of the United Nations, published the report on Tuesday. It noted that the drop in international travel resulted in a loss of $460 billion in export revenues from tourism.

联合国下属机构世界旅游组织周二发布了报告。报告指出,国际旅行的减少导致旅游业的出口收入损失了4600亿美元。

The loss is five times greater than the loss recorded in 2009 during the international financial crisis.

这一损失是2009年国际金融危机期间损失的5倍。

The organization said in a statement that the U.N. agency estimates it will take between two to four years for tourist arrivals to return to 2019 levels.

该组织在一份声明中称,预计游客人数恢复到2019年的水平需要2到4年。

The report shows that Asia and the Pacific were the first areas to be affected by COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. They faced the sharpest drop as the number of tourists fell 72 percent during the first half of the year.

报告显示,亚太地区是最早一批受新冠肺炎影响的地区。今年上半年期间,亚太地区的游客数量下降了72%,降幅最大。

Europe had the next largest decrease, falling 66 percent.

紧随其后的是欧洲,游客数量下降了66%。

North and South America, Africa and Middle East experienced similar levels of decrease.

北美和南美、非洲以及中东地区的游客数量降幅比较接近。

"This represents an unprecedented decrease, as countries...closed their borders and introduced travel restrictions in response to the pandemic," the U.N. agency said.

该联合国机构表示:“这代表着游客人数前所未有的下降,因为各国关闭了边境,并且为了应对疫情实施了旅行限制。”

Around the world, countries have recorded decreases of more than 50 percent in international tourism arrivals, threatening millions of jobs and businesses.

在全球范围内,各国国际游客人数减少了50%以上,威胁到数百万人的工作和企业。

The report shows that as of early September, 53 percent of international tourism destinations lifted some travel restrictions.

报告显示,截至9月初,53%的国际旅游目的地解除了一些旅行限制。

However, as some countries begin reporting a "second wave" of the coronavirus, those restrictions may return.

然而,随着一些国家开始报告新冠病毒的第二轮疫情,这些限制措施可能会再次恢复。

The World Tourism Organization estimates that the year 2020 will show an overall decrease of about 70 percent, but that number may rise.

世界旅游组织估计,2020年全年游客总人数将会下降约70%,但是这一数字可能会上升。
