Stock indexes around the world traded mixed on Wednesday as investors’ optimism about the coronavirus faded after recent reports suggested it is still too early to think the outbreak is contained. The number of new infections in China doubled due to travelers; the death toll in Spain increased for the first time in five days; the number of new infections in Italy fell to a 25-day low and in the US the number of hospitalisations seems to be levelling off in NY although deaths in the country increased the most since the pandemic began.
