Could coronavirus cancel the synchro skating events?
A few synchronized skating events could be at risk as the coronavirus continues to spread around the globe. Two competitions that should be organized soon in Switzerland all closely monitoring the situation after a significant increase in the number of cases in the country the last few days.
What about synchro events?
"shaking hands, hugging and kissing" are not allowed because of the current situation, explained the Organizing Committee. "Leave everyone who has flu-like symptoms at home," added the organizers. Five Italian teams coming from Lombardy decided in conversation with the Organizing Committee not to take part in the Swiss Cup this weekend.
Ice hockey games without spectators
By the way, many ice hockey clubs in Switzerland have decided to react to the threat of the virus by not permitting an audience for this weekend's games. Big international events as the International Geneva motor show or Baselworld have been cancelled.
"For the moment we see no reason for cancellation of MATrophy 2020. However, we are obliged to follow all measures of the Federal (Swiss) or Cantonal (Basel-Stadt) Authorities in charge. This means that we will assess the situation after 15 March 2020 and keep you informed," wrote the competition.
