Taipei Game Show geannuleerd vanwege uitbraak van coronavirus

De Taipei Game Show zou volgende week van start gaan, maar de organisatoren hebben besloten te annuleren vanwege de aanhoudende uitbraak van het coronavirus.

Oorspronkelijk verspreid vanuit Wuhan, China, is het coronavirus begonnen met het infecteren van mensen in het buitenland. Gisteren heeft Taiwan zijn negende geval van het virus geregistreerd dat op het moment van schrijven 213 mensen heeft gedood en 9.100 heeft besmet.

Vanochtend hebben de organisatoren besloten om het evenement uit te stellen, zonder datum voor terugkomst.

“We are deeply sorry to announce the different decision from our committee,” a spokesperson said. “2020 Taipei Game Show was originally scheduled to take place on Feb 6 – Feb 9. However, due to the serious outbreak of Wuhan coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the event to this summer.

“Taipei Game Show is one of the iconic annual networking events. With that in mind, W.H.O. has declared global emergency as Wuhan coronavirus spreads. Considering mass gatherings like Taipei Game Show increase the chance of cluster infections, the organizing committee has decided to steer away from such unthinkable risks. We sincerely ask for exhibitors’ understanding on such a major decision. The detail of the execution on the postponement will be carefully discussed, and will be announced in the upcoming days.

“The location remains unchanged at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1. The specific time and date will be announced in the upcoming days by the organizing committee.As for the team who are still deciding the withdrawal from the events. We will announce the refund or regulations to all the participants.”
