The Impact Of The Covid-19 Outbreak In Global Oil Markets


  • Iran now seems to be a hotbed of infection, with over 1,500 cases reported and 66 deaths recorded; the Covid-19's average fatality rate of 2% suggests that reported cases in Iran are underestimated.

  • And until the Covid-19 outbreak has been confidently declared to be contained worldwide, this risk discount will persist and crude prices will remain depressed.
