NIVIDIA to Skip MWC 2020 Due To Coronavirus Infection Fear

As the reported number of coronavirus infections in China grew past 34,000, NVIDIA announced that it would not send employees to the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, Spain, this year. According to the corporate, “Given public well-being dangers across the coronavirus, guaranteeing the security of our colleagues, partners, and customers is our greatest concern…We’ve wanted ahead to share our work in AI, 5G, and vRAN with the business. We regret not attending, but believe that is the right choice.”

The listing of organizations passing on MWC under the current circumstances now includes NIVIDIA along with Ericsson and LG. Whereas Spain only confirmed its first case of the virus a week ago, some are deciding that without a vaccine and extra information about the virus, which has killed more than 720 individuals, they’d rather stay home. MWC 2020 between February 24th and 27th and the GSMA said in a statement that “It’s of nice importance to the GSMA to continue to convene the business at this critical time the place connectivity is on the cusp of a brand new industrial revolution. Advocating across the business by government and ministers, policymakers, operators, and industry leaders has never been extra important.”
