Asian stocks extend losses amid mounting worries over China epidemic

Industrial commodity producers fall on concerns over China's economic outlook

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- The Nikkei gauge of Asian shares outside Japan extended losses on Monday, weighed by mounting fears over the spread of the China virus.

The Nikkei Asia300 index of companies outside Japan declined 0.6% to 1,388.10, adding to last week's 2.3% decline. Trading volumes across Asia were much lower than usual on account of holidays in China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan.
