SHANGHAI: China stocks fell on Monday as the country grapples with the COVID-19 outbreak, while an inversion in the 10-year spread between domestic and US yields and the fast pace of China’s factory-gate and consumer prices also dampened risk appetite.

** The Hang Seng index dropped 2.5% to 21,331.83 points. The Hong Kong China Enterprises Index lost 3% to 7,266.77.
