I shorted that months ago.

You may be on to something, but I'm not as confident.

Also had shares of MRNA @ $23 back in Feb.

These pharmaceutical companies are hit and miss and major targets for shorts.

Made a good bit on CODX, MRNA, NVS, CLVS, IBIO, ALLO, and others.

I've seen so many run up, and dump so hard, it's too risky.
I expected to hold it short term, but have decided to keep it for a while to see if they can turn a profit. Watched CODX rocket up during the pandemic and thought maybe AYTU could follow. Oh well.

But let's keep all the healthy people locked up....

SNIP:
He also offers encouragement for the elderly from Alan Reynolds of Cato Institute, who notes that at least 99 percent of the people who died in New York City had underlying medical conditions.

“The absolutely critical and widely misunderstood point here is that ‘underlying conditions’ are THE only risk that virtually all fatal cases of COVID-19 had in common—not age,” Reynolds writes. “That misunderstanding arose because old people are far more likely to have one or more of these conditions (and because more old people die of this and almost every other fatal risk). But it’s about time to stop echoing the fallacy that this virus kills old people, rather than sick people.”

The AJC (newspaper) reported 641 new cases statewide yesterday, which is a bit higher than the previous two days.  Trends look level basically on new cases, perhaps trending slightly down.

https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2020/health/coronavirus-us-maps-and-cases/

CNN has the same numbers.  The AJC incidentally editorially is liberal, supporting Democratic candidates with few exceptions.  They don't like Kemp at all.

The state is struggling to generate accurate counts, the latest error was corrected and took numbers down.  The AJC is correcting their numbers.

https://www.ajc.com/news/state--regional-govt--politics/error-leads-dip-georgia-covid-case-count/40wvr6fMT3V8O2W7S3uU4J/

There is nothing in the paper about hospitals being overrun.  Those stories were prevalent back in mid-March, in part because the largest hospital in the area had a major water leak that wiped out three floors of ICU capability.  A brand new hospital slated to open in August was rushed to open a partial wing to handle COVID cases, that as yet has not been needed.  The 200 beds in the convention center are being used for nearly recovered COVID patients, but is not near capacity.

As I have noted, things are just now starting to reopen tentatively, in the real world.  We still could see a spike in a week or three.

Lead story on CNN.com, the photo is of the park across the street from me.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/19/politics/reopen-economy-gop-democrats-cities-states/index.html

"Metropolitan economic elites are well informed about the risk and may simply refuse to participate in what they may view as a precipitous opening. This is where behavior is going to have a large say, rather than political or policy positions."

Hey, I guess I am among the economic elites here.  Ha.  So, the earlier stories about how awful Kemp's decision was going to be BY NOW didn't materialize, so the story is "Well, the cities didn't really reopen", which I've been noting for weeks.  The other amusing thing is how they can photograph using a telephoto a scene that makes it appear people are crowded together, which would have been possible this past weekend instead of Monday and whatever hour this was shot, it looks evening to me.  More evidence for "starting with a story and find evidence to support it" ....

AL had 245 new cases today as of 0745. However, the site is showing zero tests today. Obviously there is something amiss.

I notice here there has been a low number reported on Sunday and then a large number on Monday, usually.  Yesterday was a higher number than average.

5-19-20 PA


Here are the Department of Health numbers for the past 24 hours. 610 new cases statewide including 22 in Luzerne County. 63,666 total cases statewide including 2,554 in Luzerne County.


President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/infectious-disease-experts-expect-a-surge-in-georgias-covid-19-cases/

The 538 site polled their "experts" about what would happen to Georgia by May 16.

The consensus forecast of 1,044 new confirmed cases per day in two weeks suggests that Georgia will see a substantial worsening of the virus’s spread as a result of reopening. The daily number of new confirmed cases is forecast to be somewhere between 579 and 2,292, with six experts indicating that an increase to 2,000 or more new cases a day is plausible.


The actual reported figure was about half the mean projection, and a quarter of worst case.  The state could of course still get bad numbers as it opens up, which is slowly happening, but the forecasts for May 16 were pretty far off.  Georgia doesn't get discussed much any more.

https://www.ajc.com/news/state--regional-govt--politics/georgia-covid-hospitalizations-drop-third-state-data-shows/UXxBn0Psiyc0GTkywdwLPP/

Current statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 dropped by about a third in the last two weeks, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution analysis of data published by the Georgia Emergency Management & Homeland Security Agency.

Hospitalizations for the novel coronavirus stood at just above 1,025 as of Monday, the most recent data available. It was 1,500 as of May 2, the date that GEMA first reported the measure. It began to publish the number on its daily situation report to give the public a clearer picture of the availability of hospital resources, a spokesperson for the agency said.
GEMA gets its figures from the Georgia Department of Public Health. It does not include those hospitalized who are being investigated for suspected novel coronavirus infections.

The AJC is now tracking current hospitalizations on its COVID-19 data dashboard to give readers a clearer picture of coronavirus in Georgia.



This news might disappoint anyone hoping for a disaster so they could crow about how bad the governor here is and how great Cuomo et al. are.  I'd like to see Cuomo's numbers even lower than they are.

Georgia is reporting a high figure today with time remaining (792, well above trend line).  Reported deaths is low (12).

Something to keep an eye on.

Finished at 946 reported new cases, much above trend.

Reported deaths is low (12).

That's really the number that is most significant imo.  Viruses make people sick.  But how deadly is it (or is it not)?  And who is most at risk.

Knox County (population 475,000), which partially opened up May 1 and fully opens up tomorrow, is still at five covid19 deaths.
