Sensex recorded biggest single-day fall in its history (in absolute terms) on Monday amid rising cases of coronavirus and drastic drop in crude oil prices.

The International Energy Agency (IEA), which releases its oil market forecast from time to time, sees global oil demand at 99.9 million barrels a day in 2020, down around 90,000 barrels a day from 2019.
