Most economists agree that the Wuhan coronavirus poses the most serious threat to the global economy after the 2008 financial crisis. The disease that originated in China and is now actively spreading across all continents is quite capable of significantly slowing down the growth rate of the global economy to the lowest levels in at least ten years.
