What about the common Flu and deaths? 80,000 people died of the flu in 2017-2018. Some attended conferences.
Quite true. Did you misread my post? I did agree it was an over-reaction. You didn't answer my question though, if it was your decision to make would you allow the conference to continue as scheduled? Seems like you are implying you would. Even though I agree the cancellation is an over-reaction, I'm not sure I wouldn't make the same decision.
