for. doc who doesn't have twitter

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1240330963508432896.html

 

BTW doc, use different email! for God sake ':) 

Huh? I mean thanks for the advice, but use a different email for what? And why?  I have 4 different email accounts. 

I don't have the time or the interest to read other people's opinions, other than those posted here. I have never read long, extensive tweet threads even when I had access. I was there for the news flow and to promote my work. I'm actually doing better now that I'm off.  

I was supposed to come to Poland March 30. That's obviously not happening. Hopefully I can come in June. I'll extend my stay in Europe. I'll be extending my visa in Croatia for now.  But I will definitely come to Poland. Generations of ancestors are buried there. I'm coming.

You can count on me in terms of Poland. I live in Warsaw. Ask we whatever you want, when you would come. Let me offer you a several  craft beers if we could be in physical word.

Holy shit, I locked in a refi over a week ago and have been watching mortgage rates. My lender is now quoting 4.75%. They were at 4% yesterday. 3.5% two days ago. 4% 3 days ago. 3% a week ago. Market is totally broken. The 10-year went up like 15-20 basis points today and the 30-year mortgage rate jumps nearly a full point.

How about some good news for a change?

 

There have been A LOT of facts going around regarding COVID-19, and a flurry of “positive news” items to lift our spirits.

 

Here are a number of major victories from the Pandemic line. I’ve had my team fact-check these wins with links you can follow up on.

 

Vaccine development: An experimental vaccine developed by Moderna Inc. began the first stage of a clinical trial on Monday, with testing on 45 healthy adults in Seattle. [link]

China's new cases plummet: China has now closed down its last temporary hospital built to handle COVID-19. Not enough new cases to warrant them. [link]

Drugs that work: Doctors in India have successfully treated two Italian patients with COVID-19, administering a combination of drugs — principally Lopinavir and Ritonavir, alongside Oseltamivir and Chloroquine. Several are now suggesting the same medical treatment, on a case-by-case basis, globally. [link] [link]

Antibodies to the rescue: Researchers at the Erasmus Medical Center claim to have found an antibody that can fend off infection by COVID-19. [link]

103-year-old recovery: A 103-year-old Chinese woman has made a full recovery from COVID-19 after being treated for 6 days in Wuhan, China, becoming the oldest patient to beat the disease. [link]

Stores re-opening: Apple has reopened all 42 of its Apple retail stores in China. [link]

Test results in 2 hours: Cleveland’s MetroHealth Medical Center has developed a COVID-19 test that can now deliver results in just two hours, rather than in a matter of days. [link]

South Korea's dramatic drop in new cases: After its peak of 909 newly reported COVID-19 cases on February 29th, South Korea has now seen a dramatic drop in the number of new cases reported daily. [link]

Mortality rates inflated? Experts predict that Italy has seen a higher mortality rate of COVID-19 given its significant aging population, as well as its higher percentage of COVID-19 patients with pre-existing health conditions. This might suggest that COVID-19’s fatality rate may have been slightly more inflated than previously thought for the general population. [link]

Israeli vaccine development: More than 50 scientists in Israel are now working to develop a vaccine and antibody for COVID-19, having reported significant breakthroughs in understanding the biological mechanism and characteristics of the novel coronavirus. [link]

Full recoveries: Three patients in Maryland who tested positive for COVID-19 have now been reported to have “fully recovered.” [link]

Isolated virus: A network of Canadian scientists isolated the COVID-19 virus, which can now be replicated to test diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines. [link]

Yet another vaccine in the works: San Diego biotech company Arcturus Therapeutics is developing a COVID-19 vaccine in collaboration with Duke University and National University of Singapore. [link]

Treatment protocols: Seven patients who were treated for COVID-19 at Jaipur’s Sawai Man Singh (SFS) Hospital and Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital in India have recovered. The treatment protocol will be widely scaled to other hospitals. [link]

Another treatment: Plasma from newly recovered COVID-19 patients (involving the harvesting of virus-fighting antibodies) holds promise for treating others infected by the virus. [link]

Some of COVID-19’s hardest hit nation victims are already emerging strong after peak infection, and biomedical innovators are tackling the virus at unprecedented speeds.

 

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER… While everyone is concerned about the super-high mortality rate of this virus — which is calculated by the “number dead” divided by “the number who have tested positive” (currently ~8,000/200,000) — the denominator, i.e. the number infected is actually VERY hard to know because so few people have been tested.

 

It may well be that 10x more are infected but subclinical. So is the mortality rate 4% or 0.4%?

 

We will find out as large scale-testing comes reliably online.

 

Wishing you the best. Remember that our most important tool during times of panic and crisis is our mindset

Can you please provide a link to these assertions? There are factually correct statements made here and a number of things that are hard to source and a few items that seem improbable.

SIP I don't want to intimate you. You've obviously done good work here in terms of trading - and I am grateful. But if there is new data that I haven't seen in terms of the virus this is something I really would like to review.

I think SIP didn‘t realize that those links which we see in his post were not copied into the Stool Board. It is 6:50 a.m. in Europe right now. Guess once he woke up and logs into the Stool he will fix that. 🙂

btw Sandy, I like your insightfull very much. Thanks a lot! 🙂🏻

My bank is now quoting a 5.25% mortgage rate. Up half a point from a few hours ago. Up 2.25% from 3/6. Broken.

Wow! That looks like a total upside crash in mortgage rates. Thanks for sharing!

I have to sleep at least 4 hours a day:) FxFox is right. I live in Warsaw, PL.

ZAGREB 

More power to the civic guard. Croatian parliament has given greater powers to the national civil guard as the country faces the COVID-19 pandemic. A majority of 108 MPs approved the amendments, meaning that starting tomorrow, the guard will legally be able to make decisions and issue recommendations which will be implemented by local civil protection authorities. The amended bill is aimed at ensuring uniform action by authorities in adopting and implementing decisions that regulate citizens' and legal persons' everyday activities during the pandemic. EURACTIV Croatia's Tea Trubić Macan has more.

PRAGUE

Solidarity and mandatory facemasks.  Starting at midnight today (19 March), all citizens have had to wear facemasks or other items to cover their mouth and nose with, the government announced on Wednesday (18 March).
