Golf & # 39; s Women's World Championship in Singapore and the LPGA Thailand event were both canceled due to continuing concerns about the corona virus.

The LPGA said because of advice regarding Asian countries around large-scale events, it had taken the "difficult decision" to cancel both tournaments scheduled for February.

It said that the health and safety of all involved is "our highest priority".

The Blue Bay LPGA in China had already been canceled due to the virus.

On Monday, the British government declared coronavirus a "serious and imminent threat" to public health.

There have been more than 40,000 cases of the virus worldwide, with 908 registered deaths in China.

The LPGA Thailand 2020 would be played from February 20-23, while the World Championship was scheduled from February 27 – March 1.

"Although we are disappointed that these tournaments will not take place this season, we look forward to returning to Asia soon," said the LPGA statement.

These matches follow a series of controversial sporting events that are affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

The start of the domestic football season in China has been delayed due to the spread of the virus, while snooker China Open has been postponed.

That followed cancellations from the Indoor Athletics and Alpine Skiing World Cup World Cup Competitions in China.

The governing body of Formula 1 would consider reshuffling the Chinese Grand Prix that will take place in Shanghai on April 19.
