A deadly new corona virus that emerged in China in late December has spread to more than 100 countries on six continents, with the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the pathogen a global pandemic.
For several weeks, China alone was struggling to battle against the disease, now it looks like it came under control, at least number of deaths per day are declining in China. The international community can draw that confidence from China’s own experience as the country has been making steady progress in containing the spread of the virus within its borders. If China can turn the tide against the disease, so can others. Over the past few days, countries like Italy, France and South Korea have all taken rigorous measures like locking down cities, suspending schools and tightening port controls.
US President Donald Trump said Wednesday he was sharply restricting travel to the United States from more than two dozen European countries caused global market turmoil and disrupted everyday life. Like any other markets, tourism market will certainly be affected worldwide.
