Stocks plunged once again on Thursday over coronavirus pandemic fears, with all three major indexes shedding more than 4%.

Here is where stock ended the trading day:

  • S&P 500: -4.43% or -137.94 points to 2,978.45
  • Dow: -4.43% or -1,194.98 points to 25,762.61
  • Nasdaq: -4.61% or -414.29 points to 8,566.48

? Stocks have cratered this week on coronavirus fears, and Thursday's drop is being chalked up to the revelation that the state of California is monitoring at least 8,400 people as potential carriers.
