Following the publication of the article  ‘UK Tourism and Hospitality through Covid-19: the dissolved, the liquidised and the dormant’  written by Dr Chris Cao, Prof Jun Du and Dr Michail Karoglou, Aston University have issued a press release entitled ‘1.5m tourism and hospitality jobs at risk’. The article, based on the new analysis suggests that nearly a million jobs may already have been lost in the UK’s tourism and hospitality sector and a further 518,000 could go as government support for firms is phased out.
