BEIJING (AP) – Asian stock markets are mixed after a tumultuous day on Wall Street as traders try to forecast the impact of the omicron variant of the coronavirus. Shanghai and Tokyo fell while Hong Kong and Seoul rose. Wall Street’s benchmark S&P 500 index ended down 1.2%. That’s despite surveys showing US hiring and factory activity in November better than expected. The White House announced the discovery of the first omicron case in the US. Governments have responded to this variation by tightening travel controls, causing uncertainty about the prospects for a global economic recovery.
