Beer maker, Corona, has warned it’s facing its worst quarter in 10 years following the Coronavirus outbreak.
The manufacturer said it’s already suffered a £132million loss of earnings in China, at time when the company was expecting a surge in sales linked to Lunar year celebrations.
The deadly coronavirus has been spreading like wildfire throughout parts of Asia, after first being recorded in China in December.
To date, the outbreak has affected more than 80,000 people globally – with 15 in the UK, and 17 deaths in Italy.

At least 22 Turkish soldiers have been killed in an airstrike by Syrian “regime forces”, a Turkish provincial governor has said.
Several more were badly hurt in the attack in Idlib in the north-west, Hatay governor Rahmi Dogan said. Other reports put the death toll higher.
Turkey’s president held a top-level security meeting after the strike.
Syrian forces are trying to retake Idlib from rebels who are backed by Turkish soldiers.
COPPERAS COVE, Texas (KTRK) — A group of friends in Texas turned a Walmart into WrestleMania when they fought each other in a match right inside of the store.
The friends had spent hours looking for a spot to record their match, until they settled on their local Walmart.
They blocked an aisle to perform their WWE-style match, which involved one of them flipping from a counter and onto a table. One of them was even dressed as a referee.
Wait, that was Taylor Swift?!
That’s the question many Swifties are asking themselves after watching her jaw-dropping new music video for feminist anthem “The Man,” in which she sports heavy prosthetics and a beard to play a pompous, high-achieving businessman.
Throughout the four-minute clip, Swift imagines all the things she could do as a man with no consequences or judgement: partying with models on a yacht, “manspreading” on the subway, marrying a much-younger woman, and urinating on a wall out in public with a “no scooters” sign (a nod to her feud with music executive Scooter Bruan, as eagle-eyed fans pointed out).
In a meta twist at the end of the video, bearded Swift walks over to blonde-haired Swift in a director’s chair, who gives some sarcastically sexist direction for the next take: “Can you try to be sexier? Maybe more likable this time?”
Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday echoed claims he made about Xi Jinping in Tuesday night’s debate, refusing to say he’s a dictator and arguing the Chinese people don’t want democracy.
“If your definition is a democracy where people vote and pick their leaders, that is not what China’s about. And they don’t seem to want it. They like their system, and I think they’re wrong,” the former New York City mayor said during a CNN town hall.
“It’s a question of what is a dictator,” he said. “They don’t have a democracy in the sense that they have general elections. That is true. They do have a system where a small group of people appoint the head, and they turn over periodically.”
