Hence, the government had to close the transport system which includes local and international flight, and not excluding the movement of commercial bus and trains.

This decision have caused serious economic effect on the transportation sector because travelers cannot afford to travel as a result of the restrictions on local or international travel and fear of getting the virus.

This comprises of music, cinema, sports and games, etc. A lot of international and local events such as concert, tour, exhibition, movie premiere, sports competition, training, conference, etc have been reschedule, cancelled or postponed. This has led to organisers in this industry to refund their customers.
