Stocks Close Sharply Lower on Concern the Pandemic May Last Longer Than Initially Feared


The S&P 500 Index ($SPX) on Friday closed down -3.37%, the Dow Jones Industrials Index ($DOWI) closed down -4.06%, and the Nasdaq 100 Index ($IUXX) closed down -3.91%.

U.S. stock indexes on Friday moved sharply lower on concern the coronavirus pandemic may last longer than earlier expected, which would do even more damage to the U.S. economy. Cases of the coronavirus in the U.S. have now surpassed China as the U.S. now has 96,968 confirmed cases, compared with China's 81,340. Globally, confirmed cases of the coronavirus have risen above 585,000 with deaths exceeding 26,000. The coronavirus shows no signs of slowing as it took 67 days to reach the first 100,000 reported cases. Since then, the next 100,000 jump from 400,000 to 500,000 cases took just 48 hours.

Stock indexes recovered from their worst levels Friday after the House of Representatives voted to pass the $2 trillion rescue package and President Trump signed it into law.
