COVID-19 outbreak has hit Florida and 34 other states in the US. Large personnel gathering event can be extremely dangerous especially when viewers and organizers travel all around the world attending the event.

As viewers, who have bought tickets and are planning to attend the Andre Rieu concerts, we have every right to be alerted, informed and safeguard ourselves from the risks the venues can throw at us in such a dire situation by attending this concert.

Viewers and organizers are from all over the US and the world. According to WHO, COVID-19 can transmit from person to person through droplets (coughing, sneezing, talking, etc.) and surfaces touched by confirmed patients or asymptomatic carriers, which basically means that none of us would know if we have been exposed to the virus or not since people without symptoms can also pass on the virus. Thus, we encourage you to think rationally and do some calculations for yourself about how many people you randomly encounter on a daily basis, and whether you are certain that you won't ever become a victim of this global crisis.

Though statistics shows the COVID-19 only has a 2% death rate and 80% of the general public would fully recover from it, we also want to point out: there is also 15% that a confirmed patient would develop serious conditions that could lead to immune system failures and death. In addition, COVID-19 is NOT A FLU despite it can spread like a flu. A flu patient CAN be treated and recover when giving anti-flu medicines; a COVID-19 patient has NO KNOWN CURE and can only rely on self immune system to fight off the virus.

As a highly inclusive community, we are responsible to protect each and every community member, which include the ones who are elderly, fragile or the ones who suffers from chronic diseases like cancer, immune system disorders and other form of disabilities. The lives of these people should not be down-played and we shouldn't risk their lives since they have a higher chance catching COVID-19 and develop critical situations that may need hospitalization.

Festivals like COACHELLA 2020 have also been postponed keeping the above circumstances in mind.

Sign the petition and stand with all the lives that are potentially at risk. Let's protect ourselves and Florida residents by doing the right thing before it's too late.
