South Korea has seen a sharp rise in coronavirus infections, bringing the total there to more than 2300. And the K-Pop scene is also taking a hit. Megastars BTS have cancelled four of their Seoul concerts due to the outbreak. The World Health Organization says there is now a “very high” risk of the coronavirus spreading globally. Germany’s health ministry has confirmed almost 60 cases of the virus. Authorities have confirmed the first death of a British citizen, who had been quarantined aboard a cruise ship anchored off Japan. Nigeria has registered the first case of the virus in sub-Saharan Africa. And Iran, which has seen the largest number of deaths outside China, called off Friday prayers in some major cities, in a bid to stem the spread of the virus.
