There is a bigger picture here Jordi.

There is every chance that many countries will follow the same trajectory as Italy, where the death rate is 6%, with 600 deaths from 10,000 known infections. While the rate is well under 1% for the young, it is reportedly much higher (15-20%) for those over 80 years old. Having spoken yesterday with work colleagues in Italy, people there are very scared, not necessarily for themselves, but for their elderly relatives.

That’s why I support the IETF being cancelled, and I look forward to some productive virtual meetings.
