#world #stock #markets #coronavirus #AsiaPacific

 China stocks fell Friday to finish the week lower.

The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 4.4% to 4,505.59, while the Shanghai Composite Index retreated 3.9% to 3,196.77.

The tech-heavy start-up board ChiNext slumped 6.1%, while the newly-launched STAR 50 index dove 7%.

Australian shares closed lower Friday, led by tech stocks after Wall Street’s decline overnight sparked a similar reaction domestically, while indications of a worsening C-19 coronavirus chaos added to the gloom.

The S&P/ASX 200 index settled 1.16% down to 6,024.0, following a 0.3% gainer Thursday. On a weekly basis, the benchmark fell 0.2%.

In New Zealand, the benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index fell 0.5% to 11,636.3.

The Japanese market was closed for a holiday.
