Hong Kong stock market takes a tumble on reopen

Hong Kong's Hang Seng stock market index fell 3% when it re-opened on Wednesday as investors feared the economic impact of the coronavirus, reports BBC.

Almost all of the 50 Hong Kong-listed Chinese companies that make up the Hang Seng Index were in the red.

Travel and casino operators were hit the hardest as traders assess the economic impact of the deadly virus.

Coronavirus has already claimed more than 130 lives with more than 9,000 suspected cases.
