The number of tourists visiting Macao last month dropped to just 9,759, a sharp 97.4 per cent decline from the number of visitors in June, which totalled 380,671 tourists, according to data from the Statistics and Census Service (DSEC). 

June’s figure itself was a 36.6 per cent month-on-month drop from the total 600,748 tourists Macao recorded in May as the city was disrupted by its latest Covid-19 outbreak that began on 18 June. The city only gradually returned back to “normal” recently. 

In addition, last month’s number of tourists was a 98.8 per cent year-on-year decrease from July 2021 – when Macao recorded a total of 789,407 visitor arrivals – a decrease of 99.7 per cent compared with the pre-pandemic figure of July 2019, totalling 3,530,233 visitor arrivals. 

The total number of visitors from January through July this year was 3,474,866, a 26.3 per cent drop from the same period last year and an 85.4 per cent decrease from the same period in 2019, before the pandemic affected global tourism.
