The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the suspension of almost all the economic and productive activity in the country. Spain is facing its greatest health crisis in decades, which will undoubtedly lead to a new economic crisis. Covid-19 has affected every sector of the economy, but one of the hardest hit has been tourism, which has been seriously affected by restrictions on the movement of people, the closure of hotels and homes for tourist use, ERTEs and the mass cancellation of accommodation, events and flights.
Tolo Gomila, President of the Spanish Federation of Tourist Home and Apartment Associations (Fevitur), has indicated, in an interview with Brainsre.news, that this segment of the economy expects to incur losses of €2.9 billion due to the pandemic. As such, it has demanded new measures from the Executive to address the crisis that has caused coronavirus in the country and the rest of the world.
