List of events affected by the COVID-19 pandemic

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many events around the world to be cancelled or postponed due to a country's government imposed restrictions of large gatherings.[1][2] Among the most prominent events to be affected were the 2020 Summer Olympics and Expo 2020 which have been postponed to 2021,[3][4] and the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, which was cancelled entirely. A number of events have been modified to remove a live audience or to be purely held over teleconference.

Background[edit]

Holy Week observances in Rome, which occur during the last week of the Christian penitential season of Lent, were cancelled.[5] Many dioceses recommended older Christians stay home rather than attend Mass on Sundays; services have been made available via radio, online live streaming and television, though some congregations have made provisions for drive-in worship.[5][6][7] With the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rome closing its churches and chapels and St. Peter's Square emptied of Christian pilgrims,[5] other religious bodies also cancelled in-person services and limited public gatherings in churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and gurdwaras.[5] Iran's Health Ministry announced the cancellation of Friday prayers in areas affected by the outbreak and shrines were later closed,[8][9] while Saudi Arabia banned the entry of foreign pilgrims as well as its residents to holy sites in Mecca and Medina.[10][11] The 2020 Hajj was limited to around 1,000 selected pilgrims, in contrast to the usual number of over 2 million.[12] The 2020 Arbaeen pilgrimage resumed normally, but pilgrims that were non-Iraqi were not issued visas, and so only Iraqis from inside and outside of Iraq participated.[13]

The pandemic has caused the most significant disruption to the worldwide sporting calendar since the Second World War. Most major sporting events have been cancelled or postponed, including the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League,[14] 2019–20 Premier League,[15] UEFA Euro 2020, 2020 Major League Baseball season,[16] 2019–20 NBA season,[17] 2019–20 NHL season,[18] and 2020 Arctic Winter Games.[19] The outbreak disrupted plans for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, which were originally scheduled to start at 24 July 2020, and were postponed by the International Olympic Committee to 23 July 2021.[20][21][22]

The entertainment industry has also been affected, with many music groups suspending or cancelling concert tours.[23][24] The Eurovision Song Contest, which was due to be held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in May, was cancelled; however, the Netherlands was retained as host for 2021.[25][26] Many large theatres such as those on Broadway also suspended all performances.[27]

The large number of people working or learning from home via videoconferencing software led to several new terms and trends, including "Zoom fatigue",[28] a decline in demand for formal clothing, and increased fashion focus on masks and clothes for the upper body (the lower body generally not being visible on a videoconference).[29] The term "doomscrolling" became more widely used. Online, numerous COVID-19-themed Internet memes have spread as many turn to humour and distraction amid the uncertainty.[30]

Most of the speeches were pre-recorded[514] in Washington D.C., primarily from the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium.[515] The final two nights featured speeches by Pence and Trump from the South Lawn of the White House, in front of a crowd of 1,000 guests.[516]
