New York: So much for keeping business rolling during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has cancelled a roundtable called “Doing Business Under Coronavirus” scheduled for Friday in the city due to the spread of the infection itself.
CFR has also cancelled other in-person conferences that were scheduled from Mar. 11 to April 3, including roundtables in New York and Washington and national events around the U.S.
The CFR’s confabs are joining a long list of cancelled or postponed gatherings across the globe due to coronavirus scare.
Across the US, the spread of the novel virus has so far scuttled more than 50 major corporate events with an estimated attendance of almost 1 million people, according to data collected by media sources.
