As Monday morning rolls in, we’re providing TechWire readers with a quick recap of the past week’s news headlines.

The global coronavirus outbreak continued to dominate news coverage last week, particularly as it posed a threat to upcoming events and gatherings. Fears over the spread of the virus led many companies to cancel upcoming conferences—both Red Hat and IBM decided to digitize their upcoming San Francisco events, while SAS cancelled its Global Forum in Washington, D.C.

In the Triangle, two organizations also announced a change of plans for their events: The Council for Entrepreneurial Development postponed its Venture Connect Summit, which was set for March 17-19 in Raleigh, and Bunker Labs postponed its Atlantic Muster Across America tour, originally scheduled for March 12 in Cary.

Other hot stories from last week (March 2-6) included: Raleigh’s Loading Dock will add two new coworking locations in Wake County; Holly Springs recruitment firm finalized a merger with Elite Diagnostics, creating the largest medical laboratory-specific scientific consulting firm in the U.S.; RTP firm BioMedomics says it has developed a quick-turnaround coronavirus test. So too has LabCorp.

And, in national news: Scientists used CRISPR for an in-body procedure for the first time; stocks fell again, even as the Fed cut interest rates; an investigation claims Lenovo, Apple, Dell and HP allegedly used forced labor in their supply chains; February was another strong month for American workers.
