The men’s international alpine skiing event scheduled for this week at the Ongen Resort in Switzerland was cancelled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic.
According to the Daily Mail on the 13th, about 60 people at the resort have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Swiss health official Gibber said that at least 27 of the cases were infected by a British tourist who visited Ungen during Christmas. It is not clear whether the viruses infected by these infected people are mutant viruses that have previously appeared in the UK.
“It’s also a helpless move to cancel the game,” Gibbel said.
“This infection event is likely to develop into a super-spreading event.” It is reported that two of the three games originally scheduled for 15-17 have been rescheduled in Austria.
The news of the cancellation of the race aroused the dissatisfaction of many ski enthusiasts, who blamed the British tourist for the incident.
Some netizens commented: “How did this British leave the country (violating epidemic prevention regulations)?” Others ironically say that is this what Johnson promised that “the UK will contribute more [virus] power to everyone after Brexit”?
