A government took a decision.  There is also a decision by another 
government which restricts travel.  You and I discuss could whether 
government X or government Y is right or wrong.  It is highly 
unlikely that it would have any impact on the travel restrictions.

I did not ask the IETF LLC for any decision.  There are X months to 
do consider the risks.  Another alternative is to wait X months and 
then operate in crisis mode.

I suggest reading the policy about IETF meetings.
