With widespread uncertainty mounting from the coronavirus pandemic rapidly encompassing the world, global markets have experienced unprecedented volatility. In many cases, investors have more questions than answers: how long will the outbreak last? When will life start getting back to normal? How will the outbreak impact the economy?

Given this uncertainty, we believe it can be helpful to look at China’s experience as a useful guideline to frame expectations for how the virus may impact the United States. After nearly two months of strict containment, life in China is returning to normal as the number of cases and the spread of the virus is in decline.

We have compiled a short overview with helpful charts that analyze how China’s experience does and does not apply to the United States, which we hope might give the outbreak some useful context as we unite to contain the disease at home.
