(Reuters) - McDonald’s Corp (MCD.N) said on Wednesday it would temporarily remove some items from its U.S. menu as it focuses on simplifying operations in the face of the fast-spreading coronavirus outbreak.

Restaurants in the United States have been forced to either shut doors or limit service to delivery and takeaway, pressuring operators that are struggling with staffing and plunging traffic, among other issues.

The world’s largest burger chain, McDonald’s, was also considering deferring rent and service fees for its franchisees, who operate a majority of the company’s restaurants in the United States.
