Asian Stock Markets Take Hit From New Coronavirus Variant

All Asian indices post negative figures as new variant detected in South Africa negatively affected markets.

Stock markets in Asia closed on Friday in the red, driven mainly by uncertainties over a new COVID-19 variant detected in South Africa.

In addition, in Japan the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for November increased by 0.5% year on year, surpassing expectations.

Tokyo's Nikkei 225 stock exchange was down 747.66 points, or 2.53%, to 28,751.
