Is Covid-19 different from the past crisis?

Is Covid-19 different from the past crisis?

Submitted by • June 11, 2020 www.squirrelsave.com.sg

Historically, the world has seen several biological outbreaks in the last 50 years. The 2002-03 outbreak of SARS (also a coronavirus) did not affect stock markets. The S&P 500 gained 15% in April 2003 and gained 21% a year later. The fear of SARS was not enough to derail the market. Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) similarly saw a 10% rise and almost 18% a year later. SARS and MERS (both coronaviruses) were relatively well-contained.
