Shares tumble as as Tokyo gov't tries to contain virus

Tokyo shares tumbled Thursday, with the benchmark Nikkei dropping over 1,000 points at one point, as the capital and its neighboring cities accelerated efforts to contain the new coronavirus, stoking fears of an economic slowdown.
The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average ended down 882.03 points, or 4.51 percent, from Wednesday at 18,664.60. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange snapped its six-day winning streak, ending 25.30 points, or 1.78 percent, lower at 1,399.32.
Decliners were led by iron and steel, marine transport and real estate issues.
