And it’s not just because a lot of countries issued travel advisories against Singapore.

China tourists used to account for 1 in 5 travellers coming to Singapore. But with the travel restrictions against China coming into Singapore and a ban on travellers coming out of China, that number has dropped drastically.

Businesses who depend on tourists coming into Singapore are worried.

“It is inevitable the tourism industry is having a lull period with the coronavirus outbreak. We are hoping revenue loss will not exceed 30 per cent for the year.”

Which is why they are now looking inwards for customers.

Sentosa: Free Admission From 14-22 March 2020

Ever since the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak in Singapore last month, Sentosa has seen a 20 to 50 per cent drop in visitors.

That’s a lot.

A spokesperson for Sentosa told TNP that this move will give its guests a “much-needed getaway”.

After all, the best way to combat the COVID-19 virus is to stay out of air-conditioned rooms and get some hot, fresh air.

Where better and hotter than the beaches of Sentosa, right?
