In this episode of Stratfor's Essential Geopolitics podcast, host Fred Burton speaks to Stratfor’s Global Security Analyst, Ben West about the novel coronavirus that appears to have started in a Wuhan, China, market. West says that if this spreads to infect large portions of the population in provinces outside of Hubei, namely in major export/commercial hubs such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, there will be restrictions. If restrictions there are similar to those imposed in Hubei Province, it will only exacerbate the economic impacts and business continuity concerns in China.
