BBC News. Hello, I'm Jerry Smit. The effects of the corona virus pandemic have led to fears about a recession with markets falling sharply in Europe and one of the continent's largest car makers stopping production. The worst-hit exchanges have dropped by 9%, despite concerted action by central banks. Markets in the Asia-Pacific region also closed down as our Asia-Pacific business correspondent Karishma Vaswani reports.

BBC 新闻。大家好,我是杰瑞·施密特。受冠状病毒大流行的影响,人们担心经济出现衰退,欧洲市场现已大幅下跌,欧洲大陆最大的汽车制造商之一现已停止生产。受冲击最严重的交易所下跌了9%,尽管各国央行共同采取了行动。亚太地区的市场也出现了下滑,请听本台亚太记者科里诗玛·沃斯瓦尼的报道。

This is despite the fact that central banks have pulled out all the stops to try and inject some confidence into these markets. The measures themselves are unprecedented since the global financial crisis, but the response from investors has been abysmal. They're just not buying it. Investors simply don't believe that the weapons these banks have, injecting more money into the economy, lowering interest rates. They don't believe that that will be enough to support economic growth or the stock market in the face of a global recession because of the impact of the corona virus as it spreads throughout the world. Restrictions continue to tighten across Europe as the coronavirus crisis deepens, with more countries closing borders and limiting people's movements.

尽管各国央行已全力试图为市场注入信心,但仍旧出现了下滑。这些措施是全球金融危机以来最大规模的,但投资者的反应却很糟糕。他们不买央行的帐。投资者根本不相信银行向经济注入更多资金、降低利率是一项有效的措施。他们认为,在全球经济衰退的情况下,这些措施不足以支持经济增长和股票市场,因为冠状病毒正在全球蔓延。随着冠状病毒危机的加剧,欧洲各地的限制措施继续收紧,更多国家关闭边境,限制人们的活动。

Giuseppe Conte, the Prime Minister of the worst-hit European country Italy, has warned it's entering its riskiest weeks. Our correspondent Sima Kotecha is in Rome. It's a dire situation here. 368 people confirmed dead over the last 24 hours, almost 25,000 cases in Italy alone, most in the north of the country. Hospitals there incredibly stretched, doctors saying that they're running out of essential kits, such as ventilators and masks. And there is a concern that this outbreak that is dominating in the north could move down south.

受灾最严重的欧洲国家意大利总理朱塞佩·孔特警告称,该国正进入最危险的几周。请听希玛·科特查在罗马报道。这里的情况非常严重。在过去的24小时内,368人被证实死亡,仅在意大利就有近25000个病例,大部分在该国北部。这里的医院非常紧张,医生们表示,他们的呼吸机和口罩等基本设备已经不够用了。人们担心,在北部肆虐的疫情可能会向南部蔓延。

The head of France's health service Jerome Salomon has said the situation there is deteriorating very fast. President Macron will address the nation later today amid speculation he could confine people to their homes as Hugh Schofield reports from Paris. Certain ministers looked at scenes that were on the television and newspapers over the weekend of people still out there in parks, hobnobbing, socializing and so on, and were quite horrified that the message they thought was still not getting through as a lovely weekend. Here in Paris, a lot of people are out in the parks, gathering together. And there's the rumor mill. It's churning herein Paris about possible new measures that might come in, emulating more the Italian, Spanish situation where people are actually confined to their homes.

法国卫生服务机构负责人杰罗姆·所罗门称那里的情况正在迅速恶化。今天晚些时候,法国总统马克龙将发表全国讲话,外界猜测他可能会将人们限制在家中,请听休·斯科菲尔德在巴黎的报道。一些部长看着电视和报纸上周末的场景,人们仍然在公园里,谈笑风生,参加社交活动等等,他们非常震惊,因为在这个美好的周末里人们仍然没有充分了解到疫情的严重性。在巴黎,很多人聚集在公园里。还有谣言称巴黎正在讨论可能采取新措施,模仿意大利和西班牙的做法,那里的人们已被上被限制在家里。

The number of confirmed corona virus cases and deaths outside China has now surpassed the number in China where the pandemic began. According to a corona virus tracker, more than 87, 000 people have been infected outside China, while just over 80, 000 cases have been reported in China. BBC news.

中国境外确诊的冠状病毒病例和死亡人数现已超过了疫情发生地中国。根据冠状病毒追踪数据,中国境外有超过87000人被感染,而中国报告的病例仅略多于80000例。BBC新闻。
