“Com­mu­ni­cat­ing the role of good nu­tri­tion, ex­er­cise and stress re­duc­tion—all things we can con­trol—as fa­cil­i­ta­tors of im­mune func­tion would also in­crease per­sonal em­pow­erment and re­duce fear.”

“One way to em­power peo­ple would be re­solv­ing the short­age of per­sonal pro­tec­tive equip­ment and pro­vid­ing..easy ac­cess to the tools that are re­duc­ing in­fec­tion risk in health-care work­ers, such as med­ical masks and face shields.”

“in­door—not out­door—trans­mis­sion is the dri­ver of the pan­demic. One con­tact trac­ing study in China in­volv­ing 318 out­breaks and 1,245 cases of Covid-19 iden­tified only a sin­gle in­ci­dent of out­door trans­mis­sion.”

Lilly is also test­ing other ex­per­i­men­tal an­ti­bod­ies & will eval­u­ate whether com­bi­nations work bet­ter than sin­gle an­ti­bod­ies. Re­gen­eron Phar­maceu­ti­cals Inc. is also test­ing an ex­per­i­men­tal an­ti­body to treat or pre­vent Covid-19.

“Pub­lic-health of­fi­cials say an­ti­body drugs, if suc­cess­ful in test­ing, could yield avail­able doses sooner than vac­cines and serve as a bridge to curb the pan­demic un­til any suc­cess­ful vac­cines are pro­duced at large scale.”

“The Fed has had lit­tle choice but to in­ter­vene, given the dol­lar’s global cen­tral­ity. Some 88% of the $6.6 tril­lion in cur­rency trades that take place on av­er­age daily in­volve dol­lars, ac­cord­ing to the Bank for In­ternational Set­tle­ments”

“This gives the U.S. enormous power—to pun­ish for­eign banks for vi­o­la­tions of U.S. sanc­tions, for in­stance” “The Fed has vigorously embraced its role as a global lender of last resort.”
