Stocks fell sharply on Monday as the number of coronavirus cases outside China surged, stoking fears of a prolonged global economic slowdown from the virus spreading.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 886 points lower, or 3.1%. The S&P 500 slid 3% while the Nasdaq Composite traded 3.5% lower. At its low of the day, the Dow was down 997.04 points. The 30-stock Dow is also negative for 2020.
Monday's drop put the Dow on pace for its biggest one-day point drop since February 2018, when it lost more than 1,000 points.
