The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), the day before, on March 22, decided to cancel the World Hockey Championship due to the spread of coronavirus.

The world tournament was to take place from May 8 to 24 in Switzerland (Zurich and Lausanne) with the participation of 16 national teams. To date, the number of those infected with the coronavirus in Switzerland has exceeded the three thousand mark.

The U.S. and Australia have already withdrawn from the Olympics, scheduled to be held from July 24 to August 9 in Tokyo. The Paralympics will also be held there from August 25 to September 6.
