Active COVID-19 cases in China peaked on 17 February. Since then the number of active cases has been reducing rapidly. To assist hotels around the world in forecasts during the crisis we are publishing information of how the Chinese market is rebounding reservations since the peak of the epidemic. We hope this can give some comparison of how the hotel market could pick up in other countries. Some Takeaways:

  • From peak, to lowest point the loss is 127.56 index points.
  • The recovery, although slow, began immediately after China reached their highest infection rate on February 17th.
  • In the 27 days since, we've seen an index growth of 12.03 points (8,5% growth compared to pre-crisis average).
  • China is still running at only 20% of last years room nights booked but showing signs of rebounding.
