Game Developers Conference Postponed Due to Coronavirus

An Important GDC 2020 Update announces that the 2020 Game Developers Conference is being postponed due to concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus. Word is they plan to reschedule the trade show to an unspecified time this summer:
After close consultation with our partners in the game development industry and community around the world, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Game Developers Conference this March.

Having spent the past year preparing for the show with our advisory boards, speakers, exhibitors, and event partners, we're genuinely upset and disappointed not to be able to host you at this time.

We want to thank all our customers and partners for their support, open discussions and encouragement. As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects at GDC. For this reason, we fully intend to host a GDC event later in the summer. We will be working with our partners to finalize the details and will share more information about our plans in the coming weeks.

What about the common Flu and deaths? 80,000 people died of the flu in 2017-2018. Some attended conferences.

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.
