In detail, the festival president stated: "We remain reasonably optimistic in the hope that the peak of the epidemic will be reached at the end of March and that we will breathe a little better in April. But we are not oblivious. If the situation does not improve, we'll cancel."

Earlier, the organizers announced to celebrate Cannes 2020 on May 12th. They also promise to introduce the lineup for this great event on April 16th. During the interview, Lescure also agreed that there wasn't any guarantee for the revenue loss after canceling this festival. It's because the insurance policy of Cannes doesn't cover the mega film event.

Coronavirus outbreak has directly affected to various events and programs such as Series Mania in Europe. It was initially set to open on March 20th with the attendance of over 80,000 people over the world. However, the most-visited museum of the world - Louvre museum in Paris - delivered a restricting announcement on Monday.

Meanwhile, we also know that Hollywood actor Tom Hanks confirmed to be positive with coronavirus and so did his wife Rita Wilson. They were found infected with the virus in Australia where the superstar had stayed while shooting for the biopic of American singer Elvis Presley.

In addition, Miley Cyrus also announced to call her concert in Melbourne today because of the same reason. The rapid outbreak of Covid-19 has interrupted many artists' celebrations and events.

This is just a possibility with a high rate as if the situation can improve, Cannes 2020 will happen as usual.
