Many companies globally heavily rely on importing at components from China made in factories the Chinese have closed. Holiday companies are suffering as people avoid taking cruises or the risk of being quarantined in their hotel like the people in Tenerife. Major events like concerts and sports event are being cancelled. Even the Olympics in Japan could be postponed. Those are just a few things I can think of.

Chinese production is down, goods and materials are in short supply, businesses are going to lose profits. That is why the market value is in decline.

Panic over the virus has been created, largely by world wide media, and panic selling is the result.

Global investor fears driven by products manufactured in China as well as international travel corporations taking a big hit. As soon as several nations get a handle on the virus, the market will bounce back quick.
