Finally, Amazon became the company that announced its decision on coronavirus. According to the statement, Amazon will not participate in MWC 2020.
A statement was also received from GSMA, which undertook the organization of the event. Despite the cancellations, he announced that the conference will be held. Saying that security measures have been increased, the company warned the participants not to shake hands with anyone.
Also, participation in the fair from China’s Hubei province was banned. In addition, visitors from China must be able to demonstrate that they have been spending time outside the country for at least 14 days. As you know, coronavirus is an insidious virus with a 14-day incubation period.
