Short summary
Economic loss from disease-induced working time loss reached CNY 398 billion in China 2012. Most is from Eastern and Mid-South China. Mid-South, North, and Eastern China showed most indirect loss. Indirect loss in North, Northwest, and Southwest China is from manufacturing and energy from other regions, while loss in Eastern, Mid-South, and Northeast China is from coal and mining, implying the role of distance in regional links and varied regional loss due to different economic dependencies.
