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.

HelloFresh HFG, +3.13%, a German maker of prepared foodkits, has climbed 51%.

Ambu AMBU.B, -1.45%, a Danish medical equipment maker, has climbed 42%.

BioMerieux BIM, +5.65%, a French maker of a COVID-19 test, has gained 34%.

Ping An Healthcare and Technology 1833, +6.98%, an online provider of Chinese health care advice, has jumped 30%.

Nihon Kohden 6849, +0.53%, a Japanese medical equipment maker, has jumped 24%.
