India's risk index, India VIX Index, too jumped 20% and crossed the 21 levels. But the market is not dropping just because of the Coronavirus. There are many other reasons for this decline. Here is a look at these reasons:

1. The shadow of the corona, the shadow of the coronavirus on six continents has reached six continents. Human life is usually inhabited on these six continents. This has scared the broker path the most. Although the pace may have softened in China, its new patients and increasing deaths worldwide have raised concerns.

According to news agency Reuters, 10 new countries have confirmed their first coronavirus case in the past 24 hours. It also includes Nigeria, the most populous in Africa. Nigeria has become the first African country to suffer from the disease. Outside China, cases of the Coronavirus are rapidly increasing. The outbreak of this deadly disease is spreading rapidly in South Korea, Italy and Iran. The highest number of Corona, 2,022 cases have come to South Korea after South Korea.

2. Record decline in the US stock market
The US stock market was badly beaten on Thursday. Since February 19, the S&P 500 Index has dived by 12 per cent, the biggest fall in six seasons. Dow Jones also dived 1,190 points, a drop of more than its fourth 1,000 points.

Asian markets also imitate global markets. Japan's Nikkei slipped by 4 per cent. MSCI's all-country index slipped 3.3 per cent on Thursday. This week, the index slipped to 9.3 per cent, the biggest weekly drop since 2008.
