Albert WY Leow

The outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), has caused a worldwide panic owing to its deadly nature. The Malaysian Government has instituted the Movement Control Order (MCO) to prevent the disease from spreading further. The Government’s tourism campaign, that is Visit Malaysia 2020, had to be cancelled and all the guests who are currently staying in Malaysia have been advised to confine themselves in their hotel rooms until the MCO ends.
The explanatory research method is used to study the impacts by implying secondary data from newspapers, journals, articles and web resources. The major findings of the study have revealed some serious negative impacts on the sector concern. As a conclusion, this explanatory study could be used to assist the government in adopting precautions and the best policy should a similar viral pandemic arises in the future.
