The cancellation comes as concerns surrounding the virus, which is now known as continue to grow. The coronavirus has infected with at least 1,370 reported deaths from the virus. The US has confirmed 15 coronavirus cases across seven states, with the 15th case confirmed near San Antonio, Texas, on Thursday.
