USA has announced that they would temporarily ban any foreign national who has been to China within the past two weeks, from entering the country due to the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China.

With ESL One Los Angeles 2020 all set to kick off in March, this could potentially lead to multiple Chinese teams dropping out from the tournament if the ban extends. 

However, ESL doesn't seem too concerned about the potential ban. They announced that three teams from China will compete at the Qualifiers. The Chinese qualifiers will take place from 9th to 12th February 2020. SEA and Europe have also received 3 slots for the Major, whilst NA, CIS and SA have only received 2 slots

ESL One Los Angeles 2020 is scheduled to be held in USA from March 15 to 22. The final stage of the competition will be hosted at the Shrine Auditorium. The prize pool of the tournament will be 1 Million USD and 15,000 Dota Pro Circuit points.
