German newspaper cites Health Ministry as saying ITB travel fair should be cancelled

BERLIN, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Germany’s Bild newspaper on Friday cited the Health Ministry as saying that its new coronavirus criteria, according to which organisers must assess the safety of their events, meant Berlin’s ITB international travel fair should be cancelled.

An official at the Health Ministry confirmed the report.

A spokeswoman for the trade fair said no decision had yet been made on the event, which is due to start in Berlin next week.
