"Coronavirus epidemic has now entered a new stage in France.”
Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone has cancelled her plans to attend the Paris Fashion Week due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in France.
The coronavirus virus which is believed to have originated in Wuhan, China, has now spread across the world to approximately 68 countries.
The disease has come from animals and those initially infected either shopped or worked in the Human seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, China.
Coronavirus symptoms cause flu-like indications such as a cough, fever, breathing difficulties and in some cases even pneumonia.
Due to this viral disease, antibiotics will not help combat the coronavirus. It is dependent on the health of an individual’s immune system.
As a result of this disease, the death toll stands at 3,125 deaths. However, this number is likely to increase as the disease spreads.
According to the World Health Organisation, more than 92,000 infections have been confirmed in numerous countries.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that travelling across the world has become a scare for many people including actress Deepika Padukone.
According to an interaction with IANS, Deepika Padukone’s spokesperson explained why the actress decided to cancel her trip. The spokesperson said:
“Deepika Padukone was scheduled to travel to France to attend Louis Vuitton’s FW 2020 show at the ongoing Paris Fashion Week but has had to cancel her trip with news coming in that the coronavirus epidemic has now entered a new stage in France.”
The Paris Fashion Week was held from February 24, 2020, till March 3, 2020.
The event was divided into three categories including menswear, haute couture and ready-to-wear.
Being held in the fashion capital of the world, the Paris Fashion Week 2020 had high expectations to meet.
Despite Deepika Padukone opting to miss the event due to the coronavirus scare, it was reported the Paris Fashion Week 2020 was a hit.
The coronavirus has now entered India.
After hitting the city of Kerala, another three cases were discovered in Delhi, Telangana and Jaipur.
Alongside Deepika Padukone, other Bollywood stars have taken precautionary measures when travelled abroad.
There is no doubt that the coronavirus is instilling fear in the masses worldwide. It also seems that the disease will continue to spread inevitably raising the death toll.
