Canada's Juno Awards, the most watched Canadian music award show, has been cancelled as coronavirus concerns continue to cloud the country.
Juno Awards event organizers made the announcement Thursday morning, reports the CBC.
The event was set to start on Thursday, with the televised award show taking place on Sunday.
The Juno awards are the latest in a number of music, sport, and political events that have been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus, which has infected a confirmed 124,000 globally.
Within Canada's borders, there are an expected 100 cases of the virus, with 42 in Ontario, 46 in British Columbia, 19 in Alberta, and eight in Quebec, with one case in New Brunswick.
Quebec has announced that it will reopen buildings such as the historic and decommissioned Hotel-Dieu to coronavirus-specific care centres.
The Ford government in Ontario has also announced that it will be opening care centres across the province, including centres in Ottawa, Brampton, Scarborough, and North York.
