  • A conference about coronavirus in New York has been canceled to avoid spread of the dreaded disease.
  • The state has implemented a 1-mile radius containment zone to further control the virus.
  • Next to Washington, New York has the most number of infected individuals in the United States.

An upcoming conference in New York about coronavirus has ironically been canceled because of coronavirus. According to Bloomberg, the Council on Foreign Relations was expected to hold an event on Friday, March 13, entitled “Doing Business Under Coronavirus.’

However, the gathering has since been called off due to fears of spreading the virus. In addition to the said conference, the council has likewise canceled other scheduled meetings around the US from March 11 to April 3.

In a statement posted in the official CFR website, we read that “there are currently no upcoming events,” and interested parties are reminded to “check back soon” for further updates.

The state eventually implemented a 1-mile containment zone to suppress the virus which means, gatherings in schools, houses of worship, and community centers will be closed.

As of this writing, the state of New York has reported 216 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 0 deaths. Washington has the most number in the country with 335 cases and 29 deaths.

Overall, the United States has 1,336 confirmed cases, 38 deaths, and 15 recovered patients.

The World Health Organization has already described coronavirus as a global pandemic after the disease has reached all continents, except Antarctica.

In a statement given during a media briefing in March 11, 2020, Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared:

“There are now more than 118,000 cases in 114 countries, and 4,291 people have lost their lives… In the days and weeks ahead, we expect to see the number of cases, the number of deaths, and the number of affected countries climb even higher.”
