Coronavirus has no business in business conferencing, as the Council on Foreign Relations announced that it is canceling Friday’s roundtable event in New York — “Doing Business Under Coronavirus” — because of the virus threat.

The coronavirus roundtable is just one of the events canceled; the New York-based policy think tank is also canceling events slated up until April 3, including roundtables in New York and Washington and national events around the U.S., Bloomberg News reported Tuesday.

“There are currently no upcoming events. Please check back soon for new events,” reads a statement on the organization’s website.

In the U.S. alone, more than 50 major corporate events have been canceled due to the outbreak, according to Bloomberg News.
