Thousands of spectators joined the annual Chinese New Year parade in San Francisco on Saturday amid concerns over the spreading coronavirus outbreak.
The event's biggest celebration in the world outside China was under risk until the last moment as the authorities considered avoiding big crowds. It was given the green light only last week.
