At around 4:10 a.m. ET, Dow futures were up 158 points and indicated an implied positive open of more than 167 points, while futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were also higher.
Wall Street looks for a fourth straight day of gains after the Dow jumped 480 points on Wednesday and the S&P 500 closed at another record high, erasing the losses from the sharp sell-off on the initial coronavirus scare.
The death toll in China rose to 563 as of Wednesday night, with a total of 28,018 cases confirmed as drugmakers race to find a vaccine.
