Abstract

This study analyzes the contents of 115 articles related to the risk of tourism diseases to investigate research development trends from the period after the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome to early 2020. The main findings show that researchers lack attention to the risk posed by tourism-related diseases, and research on these diseases is often synchronized with the occurrence of major international diseases and the development trends in tourism. Additionally, diseases are related to tourism, and they can interact with each other; research on disease risk management lacks a theoretical basis and the research themes are uneven.
