Geneva Motor Show cancelled over coronavirus

The Geneva Motor Show was cancelled after the Swiss government put an immediate ban Friday on all public and private events involving more than 1,000 people in order to halt the spread of the new COVID-19 coronavirus.

The ban on big events will last until at least March 15, one of the latest major steps by governments to fight an outbreak that has infected more than 82,000 people and killed over 2,700 worldwide.

The Swiss move highlights the growing impact of the virus on daily lives and livelihoods.

Organisers of the motor show, which was due to run March 5-15 and draws tens of thousands of visitors every year, confirmed the event would be scrapped this year.
