The deadly outbreak of the novel coronavirus has left a deadly impact on the stock markets worldwide resulting in the massive dip in the net worth of Indiaâ€™s richest man Mukesh Ambani to $48 billion.
This has resulted in a drop in his global ranking too. The Richest Man of India's place went down by eight positions in the market and he managed to secure the 17th position which is the lowest in recent times.
This data is provided by the Hurun Global Rich List 2020 which ranks the richest people as per their earning and brand value.
