DQ changed their line up for the race, because of the Covid-19 virus, it is now:

Alaphilippe
Lampaert
Bennett
Stybar
Asgreen
Jungels
Moerkoev

(Devenyns, Cavagna and Declerq are out and riding GP Monsere + GP Denain instead)
 
Sporza reports that ASO allows 8 riders per team in Paris-Nice to give as many riders as possible the chance to compete.

I guess that means they're not thinking about cancelling the race for now.

man what a lot of talent is in that line up. Is the thinking that they need to give as many of their strongest riders as possible the chance to race in any prestigious race that actually takes place?

The CN article about it said the reason was their top classics riders need to get in the racing, so with no TA they moved them to PN to be prepared for, I guess, Ronde and Roubaix.

Edit: Zinoviev beat me to it!

That is an awesome lineup. Imagine the chaos this is causing for bookies and setting their odds . . . perhaps they make it up by taking bets on COVID-19 over/under (apologies if that's too much joking on a serious matter).

Looks like they will do it. I wish for them all to safely finish, as such good news would be more than welcomed now. If the virus will win the GC, then i feel it is over, for a couple of months, when it comes to professional cycling.
 
And now Jumbo is out aswell.

I'm abit sad. I've been looking forward to the new season for so long and now the Italian races are cancelled and the Northern classics seem in jeopardy aswell.
