Spot gold was unchanged at $1,575.37 per ounce by 05:34 GMT, after hitting its highest since Jan. 8 at $1,591.46 in the previous session. U.S. gold futures fell 0.2% to 1,579.70.
Hong Kong has reported its first death from the coronavirus, the second fatality outside mainland China from an outbreak that has killed 425 people, while Beijing allowed U.S. health experts into the country to help fight the fast-spreading flu-like virus.
