Senior Citizens Games cancelled over ‘COVID-19’

The annual Senior Citizens Games in the southern Thai province of Songkhla has been canceled to protect competitors and attendants from the Coronavirus, the Thai-language daily Matichon reported today (March 6, 2020).

Songkhla Governor Jaruwat Klingklao said all events attended by a large number of people have been canceled indefinitely.

“I am sorry that the Games has to be canceled, but as a large number of people will be in the stadium, we have to cancel it to protect them from the Coronavirus, which is also known as COVID-19,” he said.
