大家好!

I live with people from different countries, and people are interested in knowing about the current extent of the coronavirus in their countries. Would anyone know how to translate "Have you heard the latest news about the coronavirus?" to Chinese? (It doesn't have to be 直译,意译 is good too!)
Thanks!

    直译:你听了新冠病毒的最新消息了吗?
    Although I don't know how it connect to "news in their countries". If you ask me, I may think: "You are not asking about my home country. You must be interested in where you and me currently live."

    Oh, it wasn't very clear; you're right! There should have been a location added, for example: "Have you heard the latest news about the coronavirus in Italy?" (or in Canada, or on the other cruise ship, etc.)

    Thanks, SuperXW! :)

    Coronavirus does not equate to novel coronavirus.
    你听到冠状病毒的最新消息了吗?
    Here 到 refers to perfect tense.

    I'd say "你有聽說新冠病毒(在義大利)的最新消息嗎?" or "你知道新冠病毒(在義大利)的最新消息嗎?"

    I may say something like:
    1. 不知道意大利那边新冠病毒情况怎么样了,有什么新发展吗?
    2. 了解不了解意大利那边新冠病毒的最新情况?
    3. 意大利新冠病毒情况有什么最新消息吗?
