Morocco: ICANN52 in the middle of the Ebola crisis

Marrakesh in Morocco, is where ICANN52 would take place.

The current ICANN51 conference in Los Angeles, California, is attended by more than 2,500 participants, making it the 2nd most attended conference after ICANN50 in London, UK.

ICANN52 is scheduled for Morocco, in the African continent, between February 8-12, 2015, in the city of Marrakesh.

Many participants of the ICANN conference have raised a concern, how this would be feasible or sensible, in the middle of an on ongoing crisis related to the Ebola virus.

As a matter of fact, long before the Ebola virus reached countries outside of Africa, we raised our concern about ICANN51 and the increased participation from parts of Africa where the Ebola virus is presently active.

In the US, there is very little that has been actively done to pro-actively contain the Ebola virus, all while European airports are enforcing strong measures to contain a potential outbreak.

Should ICANN52 be moved away from Morocco and Africa in general?
