The JSE was on track for its fourth consecutive session of losses on Wednesday, tracking global markets as the spread of the coronavirus outside China prompted a sell-off in global equities.
According to China's National Health Commission, the death toll had climbed to more than 2,600 while the number of people infected was more than 77,000. The virus has since spread to Italy, South Korea, Iran and Thailand.
