Despite inevitable delays from the impact of the coronavirus, SpaceX says that it intends on launching another batch of 60 Starlink satellites on April 16th. Six SpaceX staffers are reportedly suffering from the virus.

This will be the seventh batch to launch from Cape Canaveral and the current plan is to launch at 5.31pm EDT (21.31 GMT). Warnings as to the probable launch timing have been issued to mariners and aircraft.

The launch will be the 84th flight of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, and the seventh this year.

The launch will take the total of Starlink satellites orbiting to about 420.
