Covid 19, The Near Future and You (Part II)

Times seem bleak as we face the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and retreat to our homes in lockdown. In the past, people had gone through something similar. In this video, I share with you an inspiring story of a town called Eyam and the sacrifice they made to quarantine themselves during an epidemic to stop the spread of the Bubonic Plague spreading across England in 1665 and 1666. We also find out that Isaac Newton used his time in lockdown to do science. After only about a year in isolation, he had written three papers on calculus, solved the mystery of colours and light and came up with his theory of gravity which changed the world.

Covid 19, The Near Future and You - The circumstances we need to prepare for

Summer is over, and winter is coming. Covid-19 cases and deaths are rising at an alarming rate. The UK, France, the Netherlands and Belgium and other European nations are tightening their measures to prepare for the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic. Hospital beds are filling up, and governments are straining to support businesses and industries as well as the millions who have been laid off or cannot work. We discuss in more detail the events that are likely to await us: the circumstances for which we ought to prepare.

Death Rates Plummet

Dr. Campbell discusses reports from doctors around the world that the Coronavirus seems to be killing less and less people relative to the number of infected people. 

Possible explanations:

  • Less viral load means Covid-19 is less deadly
  • More young people infected who are better able to survive the disease
  • The stronger strains of SARS-COV-2 has died with their hosts and so their spread is inhibited, while the tamer versions of SARS-COV-2 continue to spread, but are less deadly



Ray Dalio Says 'Inflation Is Coming' - How To Prepare

I wrote about my concerns for inflation a few months ago. The printing of money, as necessary as it may seem to be in the short-term, has long-term ramifications. Ray Dalio explains these concerns further. Wealth is not destroyed, rather it is transferred to another asset, to another country, etc. This is why investing or trading in other assets like real-estate, gold, silver, Bitcoin SV and other cryptocurrencies. The more diverse your portfolio is, the better.

International Update, Low morbidity and mortality in Africa

Most parts of Africa seem to be faring a lot better in coping with Covid-19 in terms of number of deaths per capita, except for South Africa. The next step is to find out why and how this is so we can learn from it.

Possible factors to explore:

Air Conditioning suspected to play major role in coronavirus spread

"After cooling systems and air conditioning were linked to a coronavirus outbreak at a German meat-processing plant, many people wonder about how safe air conditioning is. Does air conditioning help spread the coronavirus?" 

This is very important for workplaces or schools since most of us spend the most time there. They need to ensure they have good quality filters and use outside air as much as possible.  

Industries most and least impacted by COVID-19

Industries that are doing relatively well during Covid-19 in the US (but still an indicator for potential trends in other countries):

  • Vacation rentals are rising — people want to rent places nearby, driveable, to avoid having to travel by air or train. 
  • Sporting goods
  • Luxury goods are recovered quickly
  • Many e-Commerce businesses are doing relatively well

Companies reacted three ways when Covid-19 kicked in:

U.S. buys global supply of COVID-19 drug remdesivir

"The U.S. has bought the global supply of Remdesivir, an antiviral drug that has been found to help certain patients recover more quickly from COVID-19."

How the Pandemic Is Changing Our Commute

Covid-19 is forcing travel to change. This video discusses the future of Public Transport: Trains, buses and trams. 

Covid-19: is working from home really the new normal?

Description: "The covid-19 pandemic has accelerated a shift towards remote working. This could affect not just people’s working lives, but the shape of cities, gender equality and even how we measure time."

It took a pandemic for us to really take advantage of what the internet brings into our working lives.
