Oil prices slide over 3% on demand concerns as virus spreads

Oil prices tumbled by more than 3% on Monday, as the rapid spread of a coronavirus in several countries outside China left investors concerned about a hit to demand.

Global shares also extended losses as worries about the impact of the new virus grew, with the number of infections jumping in Iran, Italy and South Korea.

Brent crude was down $2.16, or 3.7%, to $56.34 barrel by 0935 GMT. U.S. crude futures fell by $1.93, or 3.6%, to $51.45.
