Though trade tensions have ebbed, “a new risk to the outlook has emerged,” Tenreyro said, speaking at a monetary policy conference here. “There is still lots of uncertainty about what the effect will be…Investors have shifted to safe haven assets. Even if the virus is contained within China impacts on global GDP may be large.”
