The virus, which originated from China, has rapidly spread to about 160 countries, hurting economic activity, global markets, and forcing countries to go for lockdowns. Stocks are suffering badly across the board as investors fear the magnitude of damage coronavirus will cause a global slowdown in travel, shopping, and another consumer spending.
The cases of coronavirus are increasing rapidly across the world with the count crossing 245,749 globally and 195 in India. The global death toll rose to 10,048 on Friday, with India reporting four deaths due to Covid-19.
