TOMSK, Mar 13 – RIA Tomsk. All-Russian forum "Cardiology of the XXI Century: Alliances and Potential", which was supposed to be held in Tomsk in April, was postponed to the end of 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic, is reported on the official website of the event with reference to the chairman of the forum, director of the Tomsk Cardiology Research Institute Sergey Popov.

According to the website, the Second All-Russian Scientific and Educational Forum with international participation "Cardiology of the XXI Century: Alliances and Potential" was to be held in Tomsk on April 23-24, 2020.

"The staff of the Cardiology Research Institute of the Tomsk National Research Medical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences realizing the high responsibility for the health and life of people, and with the goal of organizing a high-level event, decided to postpone the dates (of the forum) to the 4th quarter of 2020", – Popov is quoted on the website.

According to the academician, the postponement of the event is associated with the outbreak of coronavirus infection COVID-19, which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. The exact date of the event will depend on the epidemiological situation in the world.

"Mass events are not recommended in all countries affected by the infection, including Russia. The restrictions imposed on the movement of foreign citizens will inevitably lead to a change in the Forum program, which had previously been seriously reduced due to the non-working day of voting on April 22", – he added.

It was previously reported that an outbreak of pneumonia caused by a new type of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 was recorded in Wuhan, China, in late December. The disease is called COVID-19. According to Izvestia, the total number of infected with the new coronavirus COVID-19 in the world continues to grow and as of March 13 reached 131 621 people. At the same time, 4940 people died, and more than 68.5 thousand people recovered.
