The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:
The NHL’s chief medical officer expects the coronavirus pandemic to get worse before it gets better.
Dr. Winne Meeuwisse says the virus “really just entering the rapid acceleration phase” in North America. That makes it unclear when hockey might resume.
She says the league is thankful only two players have tested positive for COVID-19 so far and its hopeful weeks of isolation will prevent more from contracting the virus. Players and staff have been told to self-quarantine until at least April 4.
