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.
