GENEVA (Reuters) - The risk of spread and impact of the coronavirus is now very high at a “global level”, World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters in Geneva on Friday.

China’s 329 reported cases in the past 24 hours was however the lowest there in more than a month, he said.
