China stocks closed higher on Friday, marking their first weekly gain in four, on hopes that measures by the government to contain the coronavirus outbreak and limit its economic impact could continue to help equities.
The Shanghai Composite index ended 0.4% higher at 2,917.01, up 1.4% week-on-week. The blue-chip CSI300 index was up 0.7%, rising 2.3% from the previous week.
The smaller Shenzhen index rose 0.4% and the start-up board ChiNext Composite index was higher by 0.2%, giving up some gains after hitting a fresh three-year high earlier in the session.
