Trump administration officials are holding preliminary conversations about economic responses to the coronavirus, as the stock market fell sharply again on Friday amid international fears about the outbreak, according to five people with knowledge of the planning.

No decisions at the White House have been reached on these options, and officials stressed conversations remained preliminary and extremely fluid.

A million products. A million.
