    Stock exchanges of the largest economies in the world, "the United States, China, Japan, and Germany", are close to recouping all their losses since the beginning of the announcement of the Coronavirus, and some of them even exceeded 6 percent before the virus.

    Commodities and currency markets have started to decline mainly since January 15, 2020, when the World Health Organization said it was working with officials in Thailand and China after reports confirmed that a person had been infected with a new Coronavirus in Thailand.

    According to the analysis of the reporting unit in the newspaper "Al-Iqtisadiya", the Nasdaq American stocks index rose from its levels before Corona 5.7 percent, to close on the fifth of June at the level of 9814 points, compared to the session of January 15, 2020, during which it closed at 9259 points.

    The Kospi 50 index "South Korea" also rose by the same percentage, to close on June 5 at 2182 points, compared to the session of January 15, 2020, during which it closed at 2057 points.

    The data indicate that the performance of the US and Asian indicators was the best during the mentioned period, as it separates only 3% to 7% from pre-virus levels.
    While the European indicators are worse "with the exception of Germany", which is between 16 and 21 percent from their levels before Corona.
    The Saudi stock market index came in a central region, where it is still down 15.5% since January 15th.​
