First of all, tourism is the main income for philippines. If the outbreak of influenza A continue and become severe and severe, do you think that foreign tourists will dare to visit Philippines?? Absolutely no. Even Philippines own citizens will just stay at home and isolate themselves from close-contact with the public.
Furthermore, the industries that close to tourism like food, hotel, public transport, disco and so on also will be affected.
In addition, country productivity also will decrease. Now, the workers who are sick cannot work; the healthy worker also worry whether they are being infected or not. What if the rest worker are being quarantine and who should do their job??
What if the affected companies are supplier for another companies? Subsequently, the other companies cannot do anything without the stuff supply from supplier. This is a chain reaction. The economy sectors in a country are mutually dependence. If one of them is affected, then the others will also collapse.
