    South Korea’s president declared war on the coronavirus on Tuesday, ordering additional hospital beds and more face masks to be made available as the number of cases rose by 851 in the worst epidemic of any nation outside China.

    President Moon Jae-in apologised for shortages of face masks and promised support for virus-hit small businesses in Asia’s fourth-biggest economy, which has now reported 5,186 cases of the flu-like disease and 28 deaths.

    “The entire country has entered war against the infectious disease as the crisis in Daegu and North Gyeongsang province has reached the highest point,” he told a cabinet meeting, referring to the two hardest-hit parts of the country.
