Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to determine and provide the initial review of the impact of coronavirus (Covid-19) have on the tourism businesses in Malaysia. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the Covid-19 outbreak a pandemic as over 2 million proof cases were reported worldwide. This means that the country's economic growth has declined, and most businesses everywhere are struggling to stay afloat. This has almost ruined any business form on a large-scale, including manufacture, retail, and tourism. Besides, small and medium-sized retailers face the situation because of low footprints. Factory, shopping malls, schools, places of worship, and other establishments are closed immediately to avoid mass gathering, and movement control orders are introduced to contain the spread.
