What you need to know
- The COVID-19 virus continues to spread, especially in Europe.
- The popular streaming service Twitch has decided to cancel their bi-annual TwitchCon.
- The event was to be held from May 2-3 in Amsterdam.
With the coronavirus reaching nearly 100,000 cases across the globe, according to a report by CNBC, it's more important than ever to do anything you can to stay safe and healthy. Many events and conferences have already been canceled, and companies like Microsoft are encouraging employees to work from home. Twitch is the latest company to respond to the virus by cancelling their TwitchCon Amsterdam event.
This comes as an expected move with many other public events also meeting the same fate. Twitch notes that they're already working with vendors and attendees on issuing refunds, so hopefully people won't be too terribly affected by this decision. With cases of the coronavirus continuing to grow globally, travel, especially to crowded events, isn't a recommended course of action. While the news may be sad or frustrating for some, health and safety is always the priority.
