The stock market in USA had another extremely volatile day on Thursday March 5, 2020, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing down 970 points.
As the coronavirus outbreak threatens to seriously dent global growth, the fear that has emerged in its wake is already taking its toll on the American economy.
Despite the emergency rate cut announced by the Federal Reserve on Tuesday intended to give businesses and households a boost, the Dow posted its fifth-worst single-day point drop on record.

Specifically referring to USA, he said: “America should invest more in agriculture because their economy will be affected. The economy they see today will be affected”.
