7. Formula 1 Upheaval
A Formula 1 Grand Prix brings a lot of prestige to its host city and it’s a major blow if you have to cancel it. But unfortunately, Shanghai found themselves in that situation. Originally scheduled for April 19, organizers have since postponed the race. In sum, it’s causing major disruption.
But it’s not the only Formula 1 Grand Prix at risk. Vietnam’s first race in Hanoi is also in danger because of the outbreak. However, authorities remain confident that it will go ahead. Meanwhile, Australian Grand Prix organizers are adamant that their March 5 race is still on.
