AIBA cancelled Forum in Italy due to coronavirus
February 27th, 2020 / IBA
Scheduled for February 29th in Assisi, Italy AIBA European Forum 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). This decision was taken by AIBA leadership in the best interests of the delegates.
“The coronavirus outbreak in Italy worsened and Italy has by far the highest number of coronavirus cases in Europe. Moreover, Italy has imposed strict quarantine restrictions in some regions which could last for weeks. Based on these sad circumstances, we are left with no option but to cancel the EUBC Forum, which was scheduled to take place on February 29th in Assisi”, said AIBA Interim President Dr Mohamed Moustahsane.
At the same time AIBA plans to organise the meeting in 2020 when situation in Europe becomes better.
“I hope you and your families stay healthy and that the coronavirus will be eradicated soon. Your health is our priority and we will do this forum when the circumstances are better”, addressed Dr Moustahsane to National Federations.
