Abstract

• COVID-19 has devastated tourism and global economies. • Tourism is greatly needed to revive economies. • High levels of COVID-19 are tourist disincentives for summer 2020. • Malta had low COVID-19 numbers but two July mass events changed this. • An initial spike in tourism in the first half of August fell drastically thereafter.
