At this point, just cancel GDC 2020

Aside from being a major public health concern, the current coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) has been bad news for a few annual trade shows that take place early in the year. Throughout January and into February, a number of major exhibitors decided to drop out of Mobile World Congress 2020, which was scheduled to take place in Barcelona this week.
