    Global covid cases made a new new record high on Friday...

    662K cases, with the US leading the way.. no doubt helped significantly by Trumps hugely irresponsible rallies....

    Daily deaths at over 11k on Thursday and Friday were new highs also.

    I guess markets will continue to overlook it all, if there is a genuine pathway to a solution...

    But the US is the key as always right?

    So looking at the US... You realise that normally only about 8,000 people die a day in total in the US, and Friday's covid count was getting on to 2,000....

    So currently its almost 10,000 a day dying in the US, instead of the usual 8,000..

    So 20%-25% of current US daily deaths are covid caused..

    These are NOT trivial numbers...



    Under Joe, the US may lock down again between now, and the vaccine..

    I wouldn't expect the mayhem of last time, but certainly a pull back of sorts..



    PS, what ever happened to the very strong assertion, that covid was all just made up/ fake news, and would just go away after the election?? Its getting worse, not going away......
