The decision was taken after 17 contestants and staff members tested positive for COVID-19. Among those infected is Manasa Varanasi, who was crowned Miss India World 2020, and will represent India at the international beauty pageant.

“We were in great disbelief that she (Manasa Varanasi) might not be able to grace the world stage inspite of her immense hard work and dedication, however, her safety is of utmost importance to us,” Miss India Organisation said on their official Instagram page.

“We can’t wait to welcome Manasa back home, nurture her back to health and send her back stronger, healthier and happier,” it added.

The broadcast of the finale will be rescheduled at Puerto Rico Coliseum Jose Miguel Agrelot within the next 90 days.

Miss World Organisation said that the decision to postpone the pagaent had been taken after a meeting with virologists and medical experts hired to oversee the event.

“After additional positive cases were confirmed this morning after consulting with health officials and experts, the postponement decision was made,” the body said in a release.

The contestants will be allowed to return home only after they are cleared by health officials.
