The Coronavirus has been the topic of headlines for much of 2020.  There is deep uncertainty around the consequences of the epidemic on the Chinese economy and the impact on communities.

During this presentation Andrew Ness of the Franklin Templeton Emerging Market Equity team will discuss case studies from the team on the ground in China about how the epidemic is playing out for both companies and individuals.  Andrew will dissect the complexities of the situation from a macro perspective and discuss why it is so difficult to draw parallels with previous epidemics.
