The tourism industry is being badly hit by the pandemic. In 2018, the region was hit by the worst earthquake tragedy in living memory, causing tremendous suffering. In 2020, the local economy was finally expected to begin recovering towards normal levels - however these hopes have now been utterly shattered by the Coronavirus. People are losing their jobs and going hungry.
A way to help the locals is to consider rescheduling your trip instead of cancelling it for a refund, so that at least some businesses can survive this downturn and continue to provide work.
You can also consider purchasing gift cards or using social media to share your travel experiences in the region and help others stay positive.
When visiting, you might consider visiting more of the region that you previously planned.
