Meanwhile, over in England, Glastonbury festival bosses are “closely monitoring developments with the coronavirus situation.”
The organizers behind the legendary music event have commented after the UK’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty warned that “reducing mass gatherings” may have to be an option amid the spread of the virus.
According to Somerset Live, Glastonbury’s Head of Event Operations Adrian Coombs said: “Glastonbury Festival thoroughly plans each year’s event, and puts in place all necessary measures to protect the public and maximize safety.
“We work closely with all of the relevant agencies, including Public Health England and the NHS, and always review our plans as any circumstances change.
Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Diana Ross have already been confirmed for the iconic festival — which is being staged between June 24 and June 28 — with Lana Del Rey also recently being added to the bill.
