What’s the economic impact of China’s coronavirus outbreak? | Inside Story

China is taking desperate measures to try to contain the coronavirus.
Cities are in lockdown, including Wuhan where the outbreak originated. Shops and businesses are closed. And millions of people are banned from travelling.
The government has stopped its citizens joining overseas tour groups in an attempt to prevent the virus spreading abroad…but it already has, with a number of countries, including Thailand, Germany, Japan, and the United States reporting confirmed cases.
So what price is China paying for the coronavirus outbreak?
And what will the impact be on the global economy?
