The National Basketball Association (NBA) has suspended its season until further notice because of COVID-19, otherwise known as coronavirus. The news broke Wednesday night after President Donald Trump gave an address to the nation regarding the virus that has worked its way into the United States and led to the cancellation or postponement of multiple events.

The announcement came after a member of the Utah Jazz was confirmed to have contracted the virus, ESPN reported.

It comes one day after the Ivy League canceled its conference tournament altogether, naming Yale the men’s champion and conference representative in the NCAA tournament. The Ivy League also announced it has suspended all of its spring sports.

The coronavirus is also known as COVID-19, which was first detected in Wuhan City, which is in the Hubei Province of China. The virus has affected more than 118,000 people worldwide and is responsible for more than 4,200 deaths worldwide, mostly in China. The virus is starting to spread more rapidly within the United States, with 808 cases being reported, and 28 deaths in the United States, according to research by Johns Hopkins University. The virus has led to less people traveling through airports, or aspiring to be among large crowds.
