Japanese Central Bank President Haruhiko Kuroda warned today, Tuesday, that the impact of the new “Corona” virus on the global economy may outweigh the impact of the SARS epidemic that spread in 2003, with the increasing importance of China.

“The threat of impact is not limited to Japan alone, but to the entire global economy,” Kuroda added.

“I would like to give the utmost attention to the impact on the economy and prices in our country, and on the subsequent trends in the financial market, we need to exchange views across international platforms, including the G-20, and provide the necessary measures when necessary,” the Japanese central bank president added.

It is noteworthy in this regard that the SARS virus was first reported in November 2002, in Guangdong, China, and the last SARS case was registered in June 2003. According to the World Health Organization, more has been registered. Of the 8.4 thousand SARS cases in 30 countries in the world during the epidemic, the epidemic killed 813 people.
