In this episode of Stratfor's Essential Geopolitics podcast, host Fred Burton speaks to Stratfor Global Security Analyst Ben West about the novel coronavirus that appears to have started in a Wuhan, China, market. West says that if it spreads to infect large portions of the population outside Hubei province, particularly in major export and commercial hubs such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, tighter restrictions on movement are likely in those areas. And if they resemble those imposed in Hubei province, economic impacts and business continuity concerns in China will multiply.
