Retail giant Amazon’s Cloud arm Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Wednesday announced it has cancelled its flagship Summit in India owing to the growing new coronavirus concerns. AWS was scheduled to organise the summit in Mumbai from April 7-9.

“Due to the continued concerns about COVID-19, Amazon Web Services has cancelled the AWS Mumbai Summit scheduled for April 7-9 in Mumbai,” an AWS spokesperson said in a statement.

“We’ve reached this decision after much consideration, as the health and safety of our employees, customers, and partners are our top priority,” the spokesperson added.

Most of the companies are avoiding large gatherings as new coronavirus can spread faster in such settings.
