Mobile World Congress (MWC), the wireless industry’s annual showcase, has been canceled for 2020 over coronavirus concerns. This has been confirmed by the organizers. In a statement, the GSM Association said it had become ‘impossible’ for the event to go ahead.



 

Moreover, BT, Facebook, LG, Nokia, Sony and Vodafone were among the high-profile exhibitors to have pulled out of the annual event, citing coronavirus fears.


 

While a few companies were still planning to go on with added health precautions, it seems they will no longer have the chance. The cancelation is the latest blow to the tech industry from the coronavirus, officially named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization. But Spain’s health minister, urged people to remain calm.
