The world's most visited museum remains shut for a second day as Louvre staff worry about potential infections. It's the latest blow to France's tourism industry due to the coronavirus outbreak as Italy suffers a similar impact in its northern hubs of Venice and Milan. The disease - now spreading to 60 countries - has severely hampered China's manufacturing activity, with the sharpest contraction ever in February, which is having a knock-on effect throughout the region. Meanwhile, stock markets rebound from last week's rout as expectations rise that central banks will cut rates.
