The IMF and the World Bank have announced that they will soon discuss the possibility of postponing the meeting, which traditionally takes place every spring. Of course, coronavirus is a reason for the possible postponement.
This year, the meeting was to be held in the American capital from April 13 to 19. The number of participants in this event is about 2800 people. The event is also attended by a huge number of journalists.
Coronavirus caused the cancellation of many events in China, starting in January. Official Beijing had to abandon the Chinese Davos and the National People’s Congress.
In Europe, the planned programmes will be cancelled too. In Italy, the carnival has been stopped. The troupe of the famous theatre La Scala has been disbanded too.
