As the coronavirus continues to be the biggest question mark in the capital markets, it’s feeding into a sustained movement into safe haven government debt, which is driving Treasury yields down.

Per a CNBC report, the “yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to price, dipped three basis points to around 1.543%, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also lower at around 2.015%.”

“Businesses are still being affected by the outbreak though China has lifted some of the restrictions on work and travel,” the report added. “Airbnb, for example, has suspended bookings for all listings in Beijing until February 29. Chinese authorities lifted some coronavirus-related restrictions on work and travel, helping businesses resume work though overall sentiment was still jittery as the death toll from the epidemic climbed to above 900.”
