Eighty-seven percent of United States companies in China said a new coronavirus, which has killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands, will have a direct impact on their 2020 revenues, according to Shanghai’s American Chamber of Commerce.

In a survey the chamber published Friday, 24 percent of companies said they expected revenues to fall by at least 16 percent compared to the previous year because of the outbreak, which by Saturday had killed 722 and infected 34,546 in China. EFE-EPA
