Chinatown Around the world, customers are too far away. Call for support at SNS on February 20 at 9:54
As the spread of the new coronavirus spreads, sales have fallen sharply in Chinatowns around the world, including the United States and Australia, and sales have dropped sharply, and calls for support on SNS have begun.
In Chinatown in Manhattan, New York, USA, the spread of the new coronavirus infection in China has reduced the number of visiting citizens and tourists, and restaurants that have been operating for more than 20 years have seen sales in two weeks. That's about a 70% drop.
The owner's man said, "I couldn't pay the rent this month and I'm being swayed by the landlord."
Also, in Auckland, western California, the number of stores where sales have fallen to less than half has been repeated one after another, said a representative of the local chamber of commerce `` A misunderstanding that if you come here you will be infected with a virus and you will die. Isn't it? "
Also, not only Chinese restaurants in Melbourne, Australia, but also restaurants that serve dishes from other countries and regions in Asia are far from attracting customers.
In response to this situation, Twitter has been spreading support activities such as posting tweets with hashtags such as "Let's support Chinatown" and "Let's eat together".
