Probably people bringing it from cold weather regions.

Even so, it spreads just fine. My community got hit pretty solidly this year.

There are a few well documented studies showing lower contagion rates at warmer weather, but only by about 20%.

The impact on current policy is for countries to keep borders closed, since even if the impact now is manageable, it won't be come September.



How would having a more open border in July hurt us in September?
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

The ratio of posts in the covid 19 forum to posts in the the other DDF forums peaked several weeks ago, and is now on a continuous downward trend. Now thatís a reliable indicator.

It wouldnít hurt the US. It would hurt countries like Taiwan & Kuwait that eradicated it

Stocks.

Are traders just in quarantine with no access to news? How is it possible the market is up year to date? Do traders really not see what is happening? I mean one look at DDF and people should bailing from everything.

Bernie Maidoff stole more than all the looters combined. It's not even a blip on the charts for the US economy of $20,000,000,000,000/year.

Collective wisdom of the market is assuming government is strong enough to quash this when it will want to, as it's done many times in the past.

ETA: Also, oil is up
