Yeah, probably should be cancelled. There have been a couple of Olympics where one country or another boycotted--I always feel so sorry for all of the kid athletes. They've likely been working practically all of their lives and to finally manage to reach that goal, reach that peak, knowing that likely they can only perform at that level for a few years, and then not be able to participate...that has to be rough.
And of course, tough for the hosting country too, to spend all of that time and money preparing....
Maybe they'll be able to hold them next year?? That would be really cool. There are a few athletes who train for both summer and winter sports (I think biking and speed skating sometimes overlap) but probably most manage to be ready.
