Top Industries Hit The Hardest By Coronavirus

Coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19, was diagnosed by the World Health Organization as a global pandemic. It is not hard to see that the virus has also had a significant impact on the United States economy.

While many industries have been affected by the outbreak of COVID-19, there are a few that are bearing the brunt of the blow.

 

Food Service

There are over 10 million American workers in the foodservice industry, ranging from restaurants to catering companies to buffets and beyond. Major cities all over the United States effectively ordered restaurant shutdowns, jeopardizing billions of dollars in employee wages.

If you look at the Nation’s Restaurant News website, you can see that restaurants were expected to lose up to 20% of sales in March. Of course, the outbreak has lasted quite a bit longer than we expected, resulting in millions of job losses across the country.

 

Gambling

The United States has a $261 billion gaming industry, which the virus has effectively shuttered. Major casinos throughout Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and other major cities throughout the United States, have been closed. Most staff members were furloughed or laid off. The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, one of the biggest industry events, which typically brings around $8.5 billion in betting money, was canceled.

 

Hotels

The hotel industry in the United States employs more than 1.6 million Americans. In terms of total workers, it is the ninth-largest sector in the United States. The demand for hotels declined sharply due to the fact that people were forced to stay at home and could not travel. The Marriott hotel chain was one of many who announced that they would be laying off workers in the tens of thousands.

 

Live Sports

There is no question that we have created a massive ecosystem around sports in the United States. With the suspension and postponement of major sports leagues, including the NHL, NBA, XFL, and more, a huge vacuum has been created for the leagues, the players, and the investors.

The NBA alone was said to have lost between $350-$450 million dollars from tickets that weren’t sold from games. That money doesn’t even include money lost from revenues lost in the playoffs.

CBS Sports just released an announcement discussing where the MLB will stand in the 2020 season.

 

Cruises

When big news of Coronavirus broke out earlier in the year, one of the first major cases was just outside of China on a luxury Diamond Princess ship. There were over 634 confirmed cases on the ship between the passengers and the crew, as well as a few deaths. The Grand Princess that docked in Oakland, which was a more recent case, had at least 28 cases of COVID-19 onboard.

Major cruise company shares, including those from Carnival Corporation, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, and more, have taken a loss of 50% due to the coronavirus. The cruise industry contributes around $53 billion per year to the United States economy each year.
