WESG APAC Finals cancelled amid coronavirus fears

WESG has announced that the Asia-Pacific Finals have been cancelled amid China's coronavirus outbreak.

The event was due to take place in Macau from February 16-18 after being rescheduled from its original date of January 3-5 and moved from Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia, following issues with a local tournament organiser.

But the WESG officials announced on Wednesday that the event had been called off after Chinese health officials urged people to limit travel due to the Wuhan coronavirus, which has killed 17 people and infected over 500, mostly in mainland China.

WESG has not yet released any information about the new dates or the location of the event, with further details expected after this week's Lunar New Year celebrations.

The WESG APAC Finals will feature a total of 16 teams, determined by national and regional qualifiers that were held between October and December. The team list for the event is the following:

pretty sure it just spreads by human contact
2020-01-23 00:11
It is not "extremely" infectious, the real difficulty is that the incubation period is long (10-22 days) and it is hard to detect a patient beforehand.

Sars was disappeared in 2003 cuz temperature got warmed.
2020-01-23 07:18
It is definitely more serious than what the officials said Even Chinese government officials and an American got infected... Do you guys remember SARS? The infection was out of control since the Chinese government did not report all of their cases and Chinese didn't have that sense to prevent the spread

It's mostly dangerous for sick or old people as well as children. We will get used to these kind of news in the next decades. When the first antiobiotic resistent bacteries are going around, people will die of easily treatable diseases like pneumonia again. Health and disease experts in my country have been warning about that immenant danger for several years now. And it's far worse in the US, China, India, etc. because of poorer food production, and healthcare standards for the general population. For gods sake, anyone can buy antibiotics over the counter in the US, where in Austria, even the physicians follow strict protocol nowadays to determine wether antibiotics are needed (you only get it as prescriptiondrug and get several advices on how to take them properly).
