European markets opened lower Wednesday as optimism over an imminent recovery from the coronavirus started to fade.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 fell 0.8% in early trade, with oil and gas stocks shedding 1.4% to lead losses as all sectors and major bourses slipped into negative territory.
Global markets continue to seesaw on hopes and fears over the direction that the coronavirus pandemic is taking. There was optimism that the virus could begin to slow its spread, but an end to the outbreak appears to be some way off.
