Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross says China’s coronavirus ‘will help’ bring jobs back to U.S.
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the Chinese coronavirus — which has killed 171 in China and infected more than 8,100 people — could “help” to bring jobs to the United States because companies will be moving operations away from impacted areas.
During an appearance Thursday morning on Fox Business, Ross said that he didn’t “want to talk about a victory lap over a very unfortunate, very malignant disease,” and expressed sympathy for the victims. But he said the pneumonia-like virus would be a consideration for American businesses that are scrambling to determine how the outbreak will affect their supply chains. He pointed to the 2003 SARS epidemic, the “African swine virus” and now coronavirus as “another risk factor that people need to take into account.”
Sure, they may have the Swine virus in Africa and the Coronavirus in China. But doesn’t the USA have the AIDS virus, measels, gun violence, and opioids?

I think coronavirus is being blown a bit out hand, I dont see this effecting China in a huge manner for an extended period of time.
