(Reuters) – Uber Technologies Inc will take a hit due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the company’s chief executive said on Wednesday, while its food delivery business will benefit from the epidemic.

“Our airport business has slowed down a little bit, but it’s nothing we can’t adjust to,” Dara Khosrowshahi said at the Morgan Stanley 2020 Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in San Francisco.
