Year-on-year weekly change in global Airbnb rental bookings due to COVID-19 Q1 2020

The global travel and tourism market is one of the worst hit by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As a result, companies such as Airbnb are now coping with the virus' damaging effects. In the first week of 2020, there were 18 percent less Airbnb short-term rental reservations than in the previous year. By week two the company saw more bookings than in 2019, the figure rising to four percent more year-over-year reservations. However, this growth didn't continue and in week 14 of 2020, short-term rental bookings on the Airbnb platform saw a 95 percent drop over the previous year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
