Coachella Organizers Aim to Delay Music Festival Until October

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival organizers are aiming to delay the event in California after the confirmation of a coronavirus case prompted local health officials to declare a state of emergency, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Under the plan, Coachella -- slated for April 10-12 and April 17-19 -- would be rescheduled for October, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the change hasn’t been made public yet.

The move would attempt to preserve an event that’s become the world’s highest-grossing festival in recent years, generating more than $100 million annually, according to live-entertainment data provider Pollstar. This year’s lineup includes Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean.

2. A Reasonable Hope

This isn't 1918, and 6+ months could allow medical researchers to get a better handle on this than with the Spanish Flu. We have over 100 years of medical advancement in our favor.
I could be off base, which is why I used "hope" in my title.
But, seems to me 100 years is a very big number with regard to treating illness and infection.
