A conference organised to discuss how businesses will function amid the spread of coronavirus has been cancelled, amid the spread of coronavirus.
Independent think-tank the Council on Foreign Relations was due to hold a roundtable on the theme of ‘Doing Business Under Coronavirus’ in New York on Friday.
But it seems they are now unable to conduct their business under coronavirus, with fears the meeting may actually aid the spread of the deadly infection.
According to a Bloomberg report, the CFR has cancelled all in-person conferences scheduled between March 11 and April 3 for sites across the US, including in New York and Washington – where the first person to become infected in the US was diagnosed.
There are more than 1,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US so far.
