China reports fall in new coronavirus cases but concerns grow over spread elsewhere

China reported a sharp decrease in the number of new deaths and new cases of the coronavirus on Saturday, while its central bank predicted a limited short-term economic impact and said the country was confident of winning the fight against the epidemic. Mainland China had 397 new confirmed cases of coronavirus infections on Friday, down from 889 a day earlier, with the vast majority of those in the epicenter of Hubei province, the National Health Commission said. South Korea saw another spike in infections with 142 confirmed cases, taking its tally to 346, about half related to people who attended a church service.
