A roundtable meet called "Doing Business under Coronavirus" by the Council on Foreign Relations has been cancelled due to massive coronavirus outbreak in New York.
The conference was scheduled for this Friday, 13 March.
Local authorities also cancelled other in-person conferences that were scheduled from March 11 to April 3, including roundtables in New York and Washington and national events around the US, reports Bloomberg.
With the cancellation, the CFR's confabs are joining with the long list of cancelled or postponed events around the world.
Events in metro New York are coming under close scrutiny due to an increase in cases in the city and since yesterday, the National Guard has been deployed to help close down public gathering to fight this deadly outbreak.
