After the cancellation of many shows, music tours, football leagues and other events, another event to go down to coronavirus is Computex 2020. The event generally takes place in June in Taiwan. However, the rising cases of coronavirus in the country forced the organisers to postpone the event for September 2020. However, the cases have only increases since then and this has forced the organisers to cancel the event altogether for this year. Now the event will take place only in 2021 by June.

What The Organizers Have To Say On Computex 2020

The organizers are as much disappointed as the people looking forward to the event. The statement from the organisers said, “The outbreak of pandemic Covid-19 has disturbed all major economic sectors of the whole world.
