Coronavirus has disrupted a lot of plans as it has caused tech events to be cancelled, forced tech companies to order their staff to work from home and many CEOs have had to change some of their plans.

One of such CEOs coronavirus has forced to change some of their plans is Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey.

Last year, Dorsey had announced on his visit to four countries in Africa (Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa) that he plans to spend three to six months of 2020 in Africa.

However, Dorsey is now putting his plans to live in Africa for several months this year on hold over concerns about the coronavirus.

“I had been working on my plans where I’d work decentralized, as my team and I do when we travel, but in light of COVID-19 and everything else going on I need to reevaluate. Either way, we’ll continue to pursue opportunities in Africa.”

Globally, there are over 100,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, also called coronavirus or COVID-19, and nearly 3,500 deaths, mostly in China.
