The coronavirus has been reported in all 23 provinces in China and around the world. The Chinese Government has already extended the annual Lunar New Year holiday period until 3 February 2020. Other manufacturing hubs have already indicated further delays until the resumption of work.
There have been some immediate global impacts including general falls in the US and Australian stock markets but the purpose of this article is to consider possible impacts on trade and the industry which implements that trade. The most recent relevant example is associated with the 2002 – 2003 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) which also originated in China and also around the Lunar New Year.

The Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks is the government body responsible for the administration of patents, trademarks and designs in India. Additionally, the Office is responsible for the registration of geographical indications (GIs).

An address for service in India and a local agent or attorney is generally required when seeking IP registration.
