Is there any Good News on COVID-19?

Dear Mr. Market:download

We obviously live in a crazy world with a news cycle that is non-stop. We read this a few years ago but for every piece of “good news” there are 17 being reported of bad news. This is not strictly related to Coronavirus / COVID-19, but with news in general.

Earlier this week a client of ours sent us some articles and pieces of good news with verifiable links to support the stories we perhaps don’t hear enough about.

Finally some better news with documentation…

There is light at the end of the tunnel and here is some news worth taking a peak at:

-China has closed down its last coronavirus hospital. There are not enough new cases to support them.

– Doctors in India have been successful in treating Coronavirus. Combination of drugs used: Lopinavir, Retonovir, Oseltamivir along with Chlorphenamine. They are going to suggest the same medicine, globally.

– Researchers of the Erasmus Medical Center claim to have found an antibody against coronavirus.

– A 103-year-old Chinese grandmother has made a full recovery from COVID-19 after being treated for 6 days in Wuhan, China.

– Apple reopened all 42 of its China stores.

– Cleveland Clinic developed a COVID-19 test that gives results in hours, not days.

– Good news from South Korea, where the number of new cases is rapidly declining.

– Italy is hit hard, experts say, partly because they have the oldest population in Europe.

– Scientists in Israel likely to announce the development of a coronavirus vaccine.

– 3 Maryland coronavirus patients fully recovered; now able to return to everyday life.

– A network of Canadian scientists are making excellent progress in COVID-19 research.

– A San Diego biotech company is developing a COVID-19 vaccine in collaboration with Duke University and the National University of Singapore.

– Tulsa County’s first positive COVID-19 case has recovered. This individual has had two negative tests, which is the indicator of recovery.

– All 7 patients who were getting treated for the virus at Safdarjung hospital in New Delhi have recovered.

– Plasma from newly recovered patients from COVID-19 can treat others infected by COVID-19.

Tom HanksLastly, when Tom Hanks came out and announced his recovery after catching the virus, we didn’t hear much about it. Here’s a 63 year old Type 2 diabetic who has a global following but we’re inundated with only one side of the story. Instead of actors beating us on the head at the Oscars or Emmy award nights with political rants, please share some news that may give people a glimmer of hope. People can argue the timing of America’s response all they want, but we seem to be getting in gear now, and are mobilizing against this threat. We’ve done it in times of war and will do it again.

So it’s not ALL bad news.  Let’s care for each other and stay focused on the safety of those most vulnerable (both mentally and physically). Mr. Market won’t wait for the positive headlines. The stock market will move before you see those, as it always has. Do us, your friends, neighbors, and your family a favor…Spread some good news today and share this!
