There have been numerous evidence worldwide showing that holding big gatherings and events is simply a bad idea during the outbreak, and it will undoubtedly make the transmission of virus faster and wider, which put the people’s health and safety in danger. I am writing to suggest canceling or postponing the Boston Marathon due to the outbreak of Coronavirus. I am very concerned of the potential exposure of Boston people and people around the world to the deadly virus. More than 31,000 have registered to participate in the historic marathon from over 100 countries,  and it draws about a million spectators annually.  It is absolutely irresponsible to hold such an event during the critical time of outbreak. Thank you very much for the consideration and for putting people’s health the top priority.
