Practical Session - April 18, 2020, Congress Center, Institute of Molecular Genetics of the ASCR
With the spread of the coronavirus and resulting travel restrictions, we are sad to announce that the Prague Workshop on Catheter Ablation (19-21 April, 2020) will not take place as planned.
We all were looking forward to organize 23rd Prague Ablation Workshop. Unfortunately, due to outbreak of COVID-19 across Europe and in USA, many institutions started to restrict travelling of their physicians abroad. I checked today, and practically nobody from invited Faculty would be able to attend, at least in next few weeks.
In addition, on March 10, 2020 the Czech government announced a ban for any public event in the Czech Republic with participation of more than 100 people, for unlimited time period.
Therefore, we decided with Petr Neuzil and with my colleagues at IKEM to cancel this edition of the Workshop. We plan to continue next year. We apologize for any problems caused by a cancellation of the flights or accommodation for some of you. We believe you can try to claim some refund.
We all wish you and your hospitals successful fight with this global epidemic. We look forward meeting in Prague next year.
Best regards (on behalf of Petr Neuzil and all my colleagues),
