Market update: Coronavirus Posted on January 31, 2020
Yesterday, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the coronavirus epidemic a “public health emergency of international concern”.
They acknowledged China for “setting a new standard for outbreak response” and called for a “measured and evidence-based response”.
In terms of trade and investment, the WHO said: “There is no reason for measures that unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade. WHO doesn’t recommend limiting trade and movement”.
This has been met positively on the markets today.
