Stop the Coronavirus Spread! Petition to ban the fans of 2020 NCAA Basketball tournament from coming to Albany, NY for public gatherings

The City of Albany, NY is planning to host the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) 2020 Basketball tournament in the Time Union Center of Albany from March 17 through March 23,2020.  By then, up to thousands of fans will flux into Albany, NY, gathering to watch the game, and holding multiple big, crowded festive events in downtown area. Right now, in New York state, we just see the starting of the community spread of the coronavirus. It is the key time for controlling the disease to spread further.  Having thousands people gathering for multiple events for about a week creates great chance for this highly contagious disease to spread more widely and quickly, bring health hazards to everyone, especially to the seniors and people with weak immunity . We strongly petition that the hosting parties ban the fans from physically attend the event, and cancel the large planned gathering events. Otherwise, the social cost the whole society is going to pay, measured by loss of lifes, business, school and workplace showdown if a subsequent pandemic happen in Albany, is going to be far more the approximate $2.8 million benefit calculated by the businessman & hosting parties.
