Mr Trump wrote on twitter on Wednesday that CNN and MSNBC, his regular critics, were “doing everything they can to make the coronavirus look as bad as possible, including scaring the markets if possible”.
While the trump administration has sought to play down the impact of coronavirus in the us, the first case of a new case of the disease, whose source is unknown, has rattled markets.
The U.S. centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) said a new case of coronary pneumonia diagnosed on February 26 has not left the United States or been in contact with any of the confirmed cases. According to an official at the center, the patient is from northern California and officials are tracking all of the patient’s recent contacts.
The U.S. CDC noted that this may be the first case of community transmission, the first in the United States; Another possibility is that the patient may have been in contact with infected returning travelers.

On Thursday, Asia’s stock market intraday, most of the lower, the market is concerned about the continuing spread of the disease.
Meanwhile, the dollar fell under pressure in the short term, losing the 99 levels and hitting as low as 98.94.
As the outbreak began to spread rapidly to the Middle East and Europe, some investors had dropped their bets that the U.S. economy would be spared and began betting that the fed would have to cut interest rates to support the economy.
But federal reserve vice-chairman larry Clarida said on Tuesday that the fed was “closely monitoring” the escalating outbreak of the new coronavirus, but that it was too early to tell whether monetary policy needed to be adjusted as a result.
While the dollar fell sharply, spot gold jumped briefly, touching around $1,647 and nearing the 1650 mark, boosting demand on fears of a new outbreak and bets on interest rate cuts.
In addition to safe-haven demand, there is a growing expectation that growth will slow as the outbreak spreads and that the fed will act. The market was awash in bullish news. I think we are seeing some participants taking profits at this level, particularly the bulls.”
