Most Asian benchmarks gained, though Hong Kong’s tumbled in a catch-up with the global sell-off since that market shut for holidays. China remains closed, but futures on Chinese shares nudged higher after two days of losses.The offshore yuan steadied in the wake of a senior White House official denying a report that suspending U.S.-China flights was under consideration, helping ease some concerns amid mounting evidence of a near-term economic hit from the illness.

The dollar edged higher against a basket of peers, while the euro headed for a two-month low.Markets are calming somewhat from the epidemic’s initial blow to investor confidence.
