Let's give a quick update on the coronavirus.

The markets reacted to ongoing fears around the virus Thursday, with the Dow closing down.

Friday, there’s concern around the number of cases of the coronavirus outside of China after South Korea reported 100 new cases, which brings the country’s total to over 200.

There are over 75,000 cases and 2,000 deaths from the virus.

Dun & Bradstreet took a look at the impact of the coronavirus on the supply chains of companies.
