(New York, NY-AP) — The world’s five richest people are paying a pretty penny for the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
They lost nearly 37-billion dollars combined in this week’s stock market tumble. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was hit the hardest, dropping his fortune to 116-billion.
Microsoft’s Bill Gates was second. He called the deadly disease a “once-in-a-century pathogen we’ve been worried about.”
