There were 2 cases of the Coronavius in California and they cancel? Ridiculous overreaction based on irrational emotions.
I'd agree it is an over-reaction. I'd also say it is not a surprising reaction. Would you want to be the person who decided to continue on with the conference if several people ended up dying from coronavirus after they caught it at the conference? I wouldn't. People are over-reacting, expect them to continue to do so. The media's coverage nearly guarantees it.
