The COVID-19 Coronavirus and the Geneva International Motor Show

As it turned out, the coronavirus is not a hindrance to the Geneva International Motor Show.

The COVID-19 coronavirus continues to affect automotive events not only in Asia but also in Europe. Ferrari and FCA have already restricted access to their enterprises, since there is a serious outbreak of the disease in Italy (almost 400 people have already been infected), and some cities in the northern part of the country are completely closed for quarantine.

Now ,it is a big question whether the Geneva International Motor Show, which is scheduled to open to visitors next week, on March 5, will be held or not. Moreover, the first case of the coronavirus infection was recorded in Switzerland yesterday. Therefore, today, the organizers of the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) and Palexpo have gathered for an emergency meeting to determine the fate of the expo.

Having assessed all possible risks and the current situation, it is decided to hold the 2020 GIMS as planned.

Thus, the press day sessions will be held on March 3 and 4, and the motor show will open to the general public on March 5.

However, the organizers continue to closely monitor the situation and follow the recommendations of the local health department. So, ABOUTCARS will try to inform you as quickly as possible about all the new vehicles presented at the 2020 GIMS.
