Great Britain’s women’s basketball team will not travel to China for next month’s Olympic qualifiers because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Maurice Watkins, the chair of British Basketball, said: “The health and safety of the players and staff are very important in this situation. We thank FIBA for taking swift action on this issue in difficult circumstances.”
People in china died because of the outbreak of coronavirus. Almost 81 people become victim of coronavirus. The date of the game is now changed and scheduled to take place between 6 and 9 February.
The British side had been due to take on China, Korea, and Spain in Foshan. Foshan is 1,000 kilometers away from the city at the center of the outbreak, Wuhan.
