This makes Demon Slayer another anime, or in this case an event associated with an anime to be cancelled because of the Coronavirus.
Just the other day it was Re:Zero Season 2 that was cancelled for the same reasons.
And a week or so before that Railgun T (season 3) was delayed because of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Official statement from Demon Slayer website
