Through its social networks, the group published a statement in several languages to give notice that the dates scheduled for the month of February and March are canceled, most of their concerts would be held in Europe, they have also canceled some shows in Asian countries Like Taipei
It is not known if they will reschedule the tour, as the coronavirus has no cure and WHO has declared it a worldwide emergency and the patients have increased considerably, nor is it certain that other groups will take the same measure as SEVENTEEN.
Some Carat are worried, because the boys will still continue their concerts in Japan despite the emergency and that country records almost 20 infections. The opinions among the fans have been divided, as some consider it the right thing, but it was their only chance to meet them. Others believe that Pledis does not want to risk idols, but he did not cancel the tour of Asia, where contagion is more dangerous.
