Will CoronaVirus Reduce the Coachella Crowd?
As the CoronaVirus is vastly spreading in most of the countries. People have been advised to stay indoors and avoid crowded areas. In fact, A lot of music shows and conferences are being canceled in China and South Korea. Moreover, people want to know if the cancellation of SXSW is going to have any effect on the Coachella Event.
Is the Coachella going to be postponed because of the CoronaVirus? Or there is a chance of cancellation?
Reports are saying that Riverside Country’s Public Health Officer, “Dr.Cameron Kaiser” is not giving any orders for the show’s cancellation. During a press briefing, He says, If gatherings decide they want to shut down, “We will of course support and facilitate that decision.”
He later mentioned during the same press briefing that he doesn’t know how many numbers of cases would be necessarily needed to cancel an event [Coachella]. But the show’s organizers must know the capacity of the international travelers. As they will be putting the locals’ health at risk. Show organizers must be held responsible for the safety of their viewers.

California | In State Of Emergency
California reported 53 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus and one death (this Wednesday). People who are returning from other countries to the U.S. are being self-monitored for any signs of Corona.
The Riverside County Public’s Department Of Health has not reported any cases of the virus. Whereas, a passenger of Diamond Princess Cruise was tested positive for the virus. (who was later treated at the Northern California Medical Facility). We can just say that Music events are approaching at the worst time because of the outbreak of the CoronaVirus.
There is no news of the cancellation of Coachella and Stagecoach. But many shows are facing delays. For example, The Korea Times Music Festival. The organizers want to prevent exposing thousands of lives at risk. And SXSW’s cancellation just left their participants and attendees in utter distress.
Let’s just keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best. Some companies are thinking about arranging the body temperature monitors at festivals entrance. But this method has no value at all. As thousands of people will be breathing in the same environment and exchanging all sorts of fluids.
If the Virus continues spreading at such a speedy rate, Singers will only be willing to perform through live streaming channels.
