The coronavirus is swallowing the world. What started in January as a local issue in Wuhan, China, is now a global problem. Although there remains uncertainty around the health hazards of the virus, its impact on the world economy is clear. Early on, we witnessed large segments of the Chinese economy grinding to a halt and supply chains collapsing. As the virus is spreading, major economies will likely suffer the same fate as the Chinese. Across the globe, schools and companies are closed. Events are canceled, and traveling is brought to a minimum. People that can work from home are asked to do so.
