Economist predicts fall-out in Entertainment Industry due to Covid-19

by January 11th, 2021

Economist Dennis Chung is predicting that the Entertainment Industry will see a significant fall out this year, as it continues to be impacted by the Coronavirus.

Among the factors inhibiting the recovery of the entertainment sector globally, is the restriction on travel and gatherings.

In Jamaica, the government has stressed that no permit will be granted for any event, and even if persons do gather, the number of people altogether in a space, is limited.

Mr. Chung said many sectors, including entertainment, will see changes in how they operate this year, due to the Coronavirus.

Not all changes will be good, and this includes how many persons are employed to provide entertainment.

Noting the close link between entertainment and tourism, Mr. Chung said the pandemic will continue to threaten visitor numbers.
