World Economic Forum defers Davos meeting amid Omicron scare
World Economic Forum (WEF) has deferred its annual meeting in Davos amid Omicron scare. The meeting of economically powerful nations and high-profile corporate leaders was scheduled to take place between January 17 and 21.
It has been deferred for early summer. In a statement, WEF said, the pandemic and existing restrictions on travel and movement make it extremely difficult to hold a global in-person meeting.
