Dear IHQF Members and related organizations,
Since the beginning of this year, the COVID-19 epidemic has begun to spread globally. At present, Italy and Europe are facing a severe situation. Recently, Italian government announced a nationwide ban on the movement of people, the normal gathering activities can be no longer held. In order to ensure the safety and health of people, after the application of Italian Health Qigong Association and the discussion of IHQF Executive Board, we make the following decision: the 4th European Health Qigong Games, which was scheduled to be held in Rome, Italy from June 9 to June 15, 2020, will be cancelled.
Although the decision is made based on the force majeure of the epidemic outbreak, we still regret and apologize for the inconvenience to the host and participants. We sincerely thank the host, Italian Health Qigong Association, for their great efforts and hard work in preparing for this event. We hope Italian Health Qigong Association deal with the follow-up issues well, and also hope the relevant parties actively offer support and cooperation. At the same time, the Executive Board decides that for the future European Health Qigong Games or other events organized by IHQF, under the same bidding conditions, the priority will be given to Italian Health Qigong Association as the host.
Thank you for your support and understanding! Let us unite and overcome difficulties together to win the epidemic! Wish everyone good luck and safety. Look forward to meeting you again after the situation!
International Health Qigong Federation
