The coronavirus continues to spread throughout Asia. In the wake of the outbreak, and with Malaysia being the worst-hit country in Southeast Asia, the national government has announced measures to restrict movement nationwide starting from March 18 until 31, as reported by The Star. The order includes a ban on mass gatherings, including cultural, social, sports, and religious events. Meanwhile, in the region, Manila's Wanderland Festival, Jakarta's Head in the Clouds, and Bangkok's VERY Festival: Spring Break have all been postponed.

For the likes of Khalid, Raveena, and Stormzy, the show will not go on. Festivals, headlining concerts, and gigs originally scheduled for February through May have been canceled or postponed indefinitely, citing concerns over public health and safety.
