The coronavirus is currently a big issue around the world. Due to the breakout of coronavirus, the LPL has been delayed until further notice. Korea isn’t an exception from the virus; a total of four people have been confirmed of definite diagnosis up to now (28th, KST).
Riot Korea was well aware of the seriousness as well. An official said: “We’re carefully monitoring the current situation and are considering measures so that the tournament can be held safely. In case of any changes, we will notify immediately.”
The official asserted that up to now, it wouldn’t affect the start of the spring split (Feb. 5th), but if the situation gets worse, they could take any measure to resolve it. Also, if the league is held as scheduled, they will prepare ways to keep the tournament safe.
