Taiwanbörsens index Taiex rasade 8,6 porcent under morgongen. Två av bolagen som drabbades av det värsta fallen var halvledartillverkarna Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing och Hon Hai Precision Industry, rapporterar Bloomberg.

Flera faktorer triggade fallet, däribland oro över ett försämrat smittoläge av coronaviruset på ön,  som hittills har klarat sig utan betydande smittspridning.
