China's central bank said on Tuesday that its huge liquidity injections through open market operations this week showed its determination to stabilise financial market expectations and restore market confidence.

The remarks were published on the official WeChat account of the People's Bank of China (PBOC) after it injected a total of 1.7 trillion yuan ($242.74 billion) via reverse repos on Monday and Tuesday.

China's equity and commodities markets plunged on Monday on fears about a spreading virus outbreak, wiping out $393 billion in stock market capitalization, but were not as volatile on Tuesday.
