Markets outside the U.S. haven’t been spared the pain from the coronavirus that has closed much of the economy.

According to S&P Dow Jones Indices, global markets have lost $14.9 trillion in value from their Feb. 29 high, and international stocks lost about a quarter of their value in the first quarter.

But there have been a few gems, all of which benefited from the coronavirus outbreak in some way. Here are some of the winners in Europe and Asia this year.
