Cruise industry, theme parks, sporting events impacted by coronavirus crisis

It’s supposed to be the happiest place on Earth.

But on Sunday, the Disneyland resort in California closed its doors due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In a statement, the company said although there have been no reported cases of the new virus, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure park would be closed through the end of the March.

On Friday, loyal Disney fans still made their way to the park despite concerns about the deadly coronavirus.

In college basketball, the NCAA has canceled its March Madness division 1 men’s and women’s basketball tournaments due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

The league said the decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, their ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events.

Even the industry of cruise liners is heavily impacted.

Princess Cruises, the operator of two cruise ships — which recently underwent quarantine — due to the coronavirus will halt all of its trips for the next two months.

As government and businesses take further steps to combat the spread of COVID-19, the health crisis continues to pose a challenge for everyone trying to live life normally.
